Under The Cherry Tree


Under the cherry tree
You wait for
As the petals fall
A-top your shoulder,
Your love for me gets colder and older.
The sky turns black
And your hopes fall,
Your patience with me is all dried up
And you have no more love for me
At all.

You know I will never come.
You know I am not the one.
I know I shall come too late.
I know it is me you hate.
I know this is my fate.
You no longer wait
For me
Under the cherry tree.



Under The Cherry Tree

I will wait for you
Under the cherry tree
As the petals fall
A-top of me,
I will think of you
And your beautiful smile.
For the chance of seeing it,
I’d walk a thousand miles.
If it rains
Or shines
Even as the days
Pass by,
I will wait for you
Under the cherry tree.

This was fabulous! I love how you contrasted the two poems, they were beautiful, flowing, elegant, and emotional.
