The tree of love I planted as a seed
while in despair when I felt lonely
it started branching out to all those
who needed love and care as a tonic.
They came to me now and again
with love I tended to them all while
I forgot my despair bestowing care.
Now I am blessed with folks around
who glued them to me with gratitude
and that is when I looked around me
the tree of love had got them all back.
This poem was inspired from APJ Abdul Kalam’s quote…”I had a sparrow as a pet it flew away one day then I had a squirrel it ran away. I planted a tree and they both came back”.
