Preparing To Say Goodbye

When we  first came to this patch of land

that wild cherry greeted us

 with white blooms and green leaves.

As the years passed she slowly

 bloomed less and less;

 her branches held fewer leaves.

Recently several of her branches fell.

This year may be her last.

We treasured her presence through the years.

 She will be deeply missed.

  1. So sorry for this impending loss. I have mourned every tree in our yard when they died.
