Cut Down by Lexi Morgan

Posted: June 2, 2014 by Lexi in LexieM

I never dreamed you’d be cut down.
Your leaves taught me to sing,
Whispered songs in my ear.
Perched on your shoulders,
Autumn-red leaves all around me,
I was a bird.
I could fly.
I never dreamed you’d be cut down.
I was uprooted as you were,
An empty hole in my memory
Where you used to be;
Just a hole in the ground.
Autumn-red no longer paints my world.
I don’t fly anymore.
I never dreamed you’d be cut down.
