My BIG Green Friend

You grew and grew, incited me to be unfaltering,
Made me inexorable and my dreams uncompromising.

You were not just a tree,

You were home for many and also my family.

You were my childhood friend,

I still remember swinging on an unused plank

which was tied to your hand.

Once a dog ran after me and I climbed on you,

He couldn’t do the same, I knew.

I plucked your flowers but you never grumbled

I drew on you, I teased you, I played on you but you never got annoyed, you remained humble.

But now where are you my big green friend?

I don’t know why they killed you. These murderers, I will never forgive them.

I sometimes go to the place where you once stood.

Reminiscing the memories of my childhood.

They say now that it is a beautiful place.

But all I can see is your grave.

  2. its really touching. This reminded me of a granny mango tree we had during my childhood which isn’t there anymore. Also it seemed some similarity of fondness which is usually visible in Ruskin Bond books 🙂 Good one.
