He was so tall, my Adie,
Full of life and fruits he was.
I planted him when tiny,
He was my dear pal.
I watered him every day,
To watch him grow made my day.
During every rain I would shelter him,
Animals too I would drive away.
He grew youthful one day,
So did I, so we parted ways.
His branches tender and juicy,
His roots deep and strong.
I concluded he didn’t need me,
Alas I was wrong.
One vacation I went home,
My eyes wandered his home,
Yet there was no one,
Without my pal there was no home.
He heard my teenage laments,
He heard my first love song,
Where was I my heart cursed,
When the cruel axe hummed along?
They cut him away, on a day;
I cursed myself for being away,
Teary eyed I sat in the ground,
The one he shaded every day!
In the sun ,I mourned my friend;
Yet he was never away,
May be he knew my heart,
So he left his tiny message.
There was a tiny sapling,
Reminding me of our younger days,
I vowed to protect his son,
And promised myself I would never be away.
