A poem where a woman is represented by a tree, and cancer is shown as winter. Enjoy!


1. Winter is back

Winter is back,
Though it's been several years,
Back comes the sorrow,
The pain and the tears.

Her leaves begin to fall,
Her branches slowly weaken,
As she tries to fight the winter,
She thought she had defeaten.

The gardeners do all,
To keep her from death,
But it slowly gets harder,
With every deep breath.

Eventually however,
The last leaf falls,
And she sadly wilts over,
Winter broke through her walls.

But her spirit lives on,
Through the other strong trees,
And they share her story,
With the birds and the bees.

Long lives the tree,
Who winter destroyed,
Her job has been done,
Though she was never employed.
