Crimson’s Creative Challenge #140

Since the dawning of time,

Since the sun’s first light,

Since the moon had sunk below the horizon,

I stood in silence.

I have seen the rising of skyscrapers,

I have heard the laughter of children,

I have felt the ground quake as bombs dropped from the skies,

I stood in silence.

They watered me diligently,

They climbed in my branches,

They sheltered in my shade from the sun and the rain,

I stood in silence.

I stood strong and tall,

I stood complacent and impervious,

I stood still and waiting,

I stood in silence.

Then I was gone.
