The Willow tree with the Diamond Ring
When they were three they shared juice boxes. At five they planted a willow tree, seven they walked into school hand in hand. When they were thirteen he fell in love but didn't say a word. At sixteen his heart grew fonder of the girl that stayed clueless. and at eighteen he had had enough he grabbed up his collage fund and sent her a text to meet at the school and stayed for hours for a girl that never came. He walled home heavy in heart and checked his phone to find a text. The boy runs to the willow tree, his heart ripping from his chest at the sight of his best friend lying on the ground. He falls to the floor and covers her face with his tears. As his tears fall he wipers in her ear " If only I had noticed your pain. If only I hadn't been so blind. If only I had looked past your fading smile. If only, if only I had told you I loved you, our last breaths could have been together, watching our grand children play in the gentle breeze of the spring and we could have faded together, underneath the willow tree. He kisses her cold forehead and stands up, tears still falling and drops the ring box deep into the roots of the willow tree. With a last tear he leaves swearing to never love again.
