One and Only

Branches stretching in the dark,

Please soothe my heart.

Dance in the open window

And steal the stress that rests.

I won't sleep until then, I guess.

And please find time

To paint your leaves—it'll help,

I believe. 

Make me feel

What you feel when the fires burn.

I want to learn—to turn

Into someone I won't recognize.

Like when the seasons roll by,

And you are not the same,

But you're the one and only


Please resurrect me

And make me see.
