Shade of the Cherry Tree

Sitting in the shade of the cherry tree
Blossoms bright and fragrant
The scent floating upon the warm spring air

Small pink flowers float down upon me
Petals swirl like pixies with transparent wings
A peacefulness no sorrow can break or tear apart

Shade embraces me in blankets of shadow
I hear it whisper the language of love within my ear
Though to blind eyes I am alone, I am truly not

Cherry blossoms in my hair
Forming a crown with the soft beauty of nature
As natural as my lover's shade

Here, here I can release my pain and sorrow
Beneath the boughs of the cherry tree
Here I am one, I am myself
