Standing, lonely, solitary

Limbs of stone are stationary

Roots for spreading underground

Tethered to the Earth, I'm bound

Then you came and grew so near

Ignore the panic, chaos, fear

Branches reaching, gentle, kind

Branches reaching now entwined

An old wind comes to tear apart

Ripping branches, breaking heart

Howling, screaming, clutching wind

Searching for the fear within

Praying, begging, limbs hold tight

All to face the coming night

Twisting, loving, woven limbs

Withstanding pain, withstanding wind

Endless night now forced away

Sky of red begins the day

There we stand, two together

Stronger now and on forever
