Do look beyond the frozen tree
There's sunshine a li'lle, I think..
Or maybe just broken glass
Smiling with every blink..
Do look beyond its ugly knots
The russet cracks and the scoops
There are treasured pains, Linking arms..
Bronzed in friendly loops..
Do look beyond its leafless shrug,
Its toothless grin..
There are unshed tears,
Resting in peace..
In the cradle of thoughtless sin..
Lovers robed in leaves of passion
Of Autumn frolics and fun..
Leaving behind forbidden love
Naked beneath the sun..
Pirates of the lonely coasts
Robbing the shelter of the tree -
Draped in hues of earthly pleasures
And the mystic lull of the sea..
Burnt, broken.. but still alive
With secrets buried deep -
It stays awake through endless dreams..
Just so, I can sleep..
Look beyond the frozen arms
Where I survive unseen..
A solitary bud in the crest of death,
A hope that keeps it green..
