Lonely Eucalyptus

Once upon a time,
You stood like a tree-
Undeterred by the winds,
But wanted to be free!
Conversations of moonlit nights
When we joined the lip-
Are part of history now,
'Cause promises you didn't keep!

Memories float on mental webs
To hunt for a green life-
And I found a new love,
Truly without a mental strife!
Her beauty now outshines
Every corner and nook-
And I find it's inviting
When and wherever I look!

Withered skulls of grasses
Are changing so fast-
But assure me a new vitality
That would surely last!
So my perceptions about you
Now remind the lonely Eucalyptus-
Planted in backyard,
And short-lived with no more fuss!
