Dear trees, will you ever forgive us?
Never do you aspire anything in return
Just willing to serve us selflessly
Can you ever forgive us humans for destroying you so ruthlessly?
How selfish we humans are!
We forgot to care, to love and to nurture
Diseases and disasters are hence the results – the curse of nature
When you bend to caress me and your shade hugs my heart..
Nothing beats those euphoric moments
and my soul never wishes to stay apart
Much more than just a seed, a stem and a timber
Every tree is far more precious than even gold, diamond and silver
Most beautiful creation of God are the trees
So generous and so humble
To give us warmth, happily turning to ashes without a mumble.
Today I love you so much my friend with every ounce of my being
I wish the whole humankind realises your worth and treat you like their fellow beings
Every breath you take until you perish
So that we can stay alive
You served us for ages
Now it’s our turn to make you smile.
