Under the sakura tree
Stood a girl and a boy
Seperated by nothing
But time, which could
Steal their breath
At any given moment
Each spring they
Would meet up
Under the sakura tree
The place they first met
And admire the beauty
Of what bound their hearts
The sweet scent of cherries
Lingering in the chilled air
From the soft rainy breeze
Overwhelming their senses
With love and appreciation
Reminding how
Fragile and salient
Life is, and to live
In the present moment
So for the boy and the girl
They knew time was priceless
And fleeting, so they made
A promise to never let
Time part them again
Under the sakura tree
