Silent Wait

source

I scattered my dreams

To the wild sky

I stand alone

Bereft of my joy

I wait for

The mercy of Spring

 

My roots are deep

Strong in faith

Ordeals can’t shake it

Let the snow fall

I wait for

The mercy of Spring

  3. Deciduous trees are so wise knowing that by denuding itself of its beautiful leaves and conserving its energy it will live another year.
