Silent stoic watcher of time
To you my life but a second gone by
We just buzz on around you like annoying fly’s
You remain unaffected by the concerns of man
You have no agenda no drawn out plan.
You’ve lived through the ages , seen wars and disease.
Seen emperor’s and kings flourish then fall to their knees.
You knew me as a child and watched me grow through blazing hot summers and crisp winter snows .
You witnessed the birth of my great grandpa , his sons , you’ll out live me , but thats how it goes .
Keep watching stoic sentinel of the woods , watch over my children and theirs as lives ebb and time flows.
