is what we are
growing together, waiting to be picked
both of us, growing as we act
either rotting or ripening
we hold onto the branch
we need to be held; to be comforted
our tree is our mother
a mother is what we need
we need each other to share our love
so hold on (don’t let go)
we see some fall; but we aren’t like them
so please...
hold onto the branch
soon we will be picked
for we are special, wanted; we just need to ripen more
...just hold on...
we need our tree

don’t let go.
