PostSubject: not even me   Tue Mar 19, 2013 1:37 am

I see an old oak tree and it's starting to fade

and I remember as a child sitting under its shade

and as I grew taller, day by day

that tree outgrew me...up, up and away

My first tree house was way up high

and I would go there to play, sometimes I'd sneak there to cry

I'd pull the rope-ladder up so I could be all alone

just a king in his castle...a boy on his throne

A stones throw away from my house, from my cell

yet worlds apart, just like heaven and hell

I carved my initials in the trunk like it was art

and the initials of my girlfriend in the middle of a heart

I climbed to the top of that tree like a clown

and probably hit every branch as I was falling down

From the north side of the tree you head eleven steps west

and that's where I buried treasure, the things I loved the best

That tree was my safe place because that tree made me smile

and to this day I'd go back every once in awhile

but now the tree is diseased, it's dying and brittle

and I'm sad that I can't have what I had when I was little

I count it as one final lesson that I learned from that tree

nothing worldly lasts forever...not even me
