MeLilac

by Cadence Beret


If I had a towering tree
To call my own
Perhaps my family garden
Would still bloom as one

Transplanted
Across the land
We bloom independently
Throughout our country

So if I had to be a tree
For my family garden
Perhaps I would be
A lilac tree

Then I could be
A flower and a tree
To protect and sustain
My family

A canopy of verdant leaves
Would shelter those I love
And fragrant blooms
Would sweeten their hearts
While roots spread below
For them to stand upon
Then perhaps again
We could bloom as one
