TEARS OF A TREE
   DANGERS EVERYWHERE

Happy, they were
A tree and its only fruit
Danced with the wind
And sang along with the birds.

Suddenly, Dieback
Paid them a visit.
It stayed in the skin Of the tree 
And infected the fruit.

Day and night,
Leaves would fall 
From the tree 
Pleading with its maker.

Its heart, it was ready to remove 
From its chest
To ensure the survival 
Of its only fruit.

"All will be well",
The fruit said as tears roll from its eyes
to its cheeks;
hitting the floor like a hard nut.

In the pool of their tears,
They hugged themselves
"I love you", were the fruit's last words
"I'm sorry", were the tree's last words.
