Leaf and Me

I planted a tree
a day after you died.
And every leaf that fell
from the tree
is a tear I have not shed.

  1. It sounds like you had the same mother I did! (Just sort of kidding. She had her good points.) Who were you writing this about? — YUR

    1. Well, my reasons are a little more complicated. I just wrote it as a poem, but when I was done I could relate it to being for someone very close to me. My intention was that I couldn’t show my tears to anyone-the world being so cruel. And that’s how the leaves fell. I was, and still am quite sad but unable to let out those feelings. But it’s really cool to see others’ interpretations!
