A single tree is a lonely tree, taking all of the abuse.
It has no companion to share beauty with
or entangle within its roots.

We're trees in this forest of life.
Together we'll parade into our unknown future.
Blissfully content, worrying is a thing of the past,
as long as the future consists of us,
and not you.. and me..

Like trees we'll stand side by side
through every storm and any weather,
it's a promise, we'll stick together.
We'll share sunrises and sway with the breeze
under a sky decorated with stars.
We may lose a piece of ourselves
at times when life becomes cold,
but are never forgetful that we
regain what we've lost in due time.

I promise to stand strong for you,
so if you ever feel weak lean on me.
We'll grow together in
the precious moments of now;
everyday bringing us closer and more attached..
We'll share our pains and awake to the sun
every day knowing the other
is still standing strong by our side...

Like two trees in a forest

    This poem, also, is like a tree, a tree with a strong structure and desirable form. :)

    The poet titles the poem as "Serenity", a feeling of calmness or peace. Titling a poem as such, I think they only mean to convey that this is going to be an inspirational poem.

    The tree has many representations throughout the poem, but in my opinion, and as obvious as it is, it means to finally suggest that we are like the trees and as we all know, trees prevent/reduce erosion, harmful land pollutants and flooding. The forest here signifies the unknown and the evil things that knock us off the path altogether.

    The ending sums it up, peace is possible but only if we work together to achieve it. Same applies when it comes to dealing with our partners, too. Excellent piece!

    Beautiful Stephen, I like how you symbolizes us as humans as trees. In all actuality man and trees have many similarities we grow just as a tree does and take in oxygen. I love how you use such a beautiful creation to tell a love story. Well done...
