Above The Clouds

The power of a hurricane
is greater than I can comprehend
one destroyed a tree I loved
explaining how this made me feel
I am at loss how or where to begin.

Memories of climbing in this tree
makes me feel sand and blue
I hope this tree will be waiting
for me above the clouds one day
To climb in like I used to do.

Love for my family and friends
will always be first in my heart
but I love many other things too
especially my love for this tree
It lives inside me in a special part.
