By David Lindsay


Covered in dust from years of existence

We couldn't move if we actually tried

You and I, formed by nature's persistence

Resistance, a force we never applied


Our roots becoming indestructible

Stretching into the Earth, they intertwine

These vibrant leaves are not combustible

Growing stronger with the passage of time


Deeper than the ocean, thicker than blood

Our liquid bond has no defined limits

Sometimes we're a creek, sometimes we're a flood

Neither one of us counting the minutes


Though love seems immortal; time won't heal all

Rocks crumble, trees wither, and water falls
