*Drops Of Sapphire*

If I were a tree
I would understand
how it is
to stand against storms
and grow stronger
I would realize
what it means
to give away
without feeling the loss

I wouldn’t be fearing the nights
It is from darkness
I would draw my breath
The storms and misfortunes
would make my roots firm
I would give away my leaves
to the striking winds at fall
The missing parts of my green heart
wouldn’t ever bleed

If I were a tree
I would know
how to be grateful for the rain
for the sapphire drops
falling gently down on me
from his glance
Drenched with his love
I would become immune to fear
With no power to radiate
it would be
just a confused shadow
in my sunny forest

If I were a tree
he would be my river
