A Cross in the Sky

Dr Abe V Rotor 

Skeleton of an acacia tree, QC

I have lost you forever,
now a silhouette in the sky,
spreading a gospel to remember
for the mindless passerby.

You lived half of your life,
yet fullest at the Throne;
earning it well with strife, 
where every seed is grown.

The birds now a flock, 
the child a man; 
you bid them all the luck,
and now you are gone.

In youth you sheltered me,
a thought I can't be free,
I atone for your brevity, 
with a thousand-and-one tree.~
