Two as one

Standing here entwined with you is my life and all that I want to do.
We have heard laughter and seen tears and watched lives unfold through out the years.
Babies and children playing at our feet through generations now which makes us feel complete.
Through war and peace we have stood true you for me and I for you. Some have tried us to part. Luckily, for us they have failed for we would die if wrenched apart.
So for now in sun or rain through delight and deep sorrow we stand united and so remain.

      Thank you Betty I am very pleased with this poem I took the photos myself and as I touched their gnarled trunks they told me their story. We saw them in a park that was a ww1 memorial.

        That must’ve been something to see those old, entwined trees in person. You did a great job of photographing them. I love trees – especially when they embrace each other. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Yes it was I can truly say that it was a special moment and I honestly felt at one with the trees I was lucky with the photos as I took them on my phone ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    What a gorgeous take on a couple of trees you chanced by. For a start, it’s a great picture (couple of pictures). Trees are so solid, so wonderfully solid.

      Thank you Noeleen I am so pleased that you liked this poem. It honestly jus came into my mind when I saw them in a park. I took the photos because those trees spoke to me. I honestly think this is my favourite poem;-) xx
