Week 9 challenge: fruit

I wrote it as a waltz in my head but could also hear it as a 4/4 folk ballad

Lyrics: 

cherry trees

V1
we walked through
full green trees
now dotted
in red

we sang some
old love songs
that waltzed in
our heads

we felt the
warm bright sun
and that’s when
you said

C
will you marry me
by the cherry trees
next spring when
their flowers bloom?

will you marry me
by the cherry trees
I said yes
in the afternoon

V2
they skipped through
rows of trees
with cherries
ripe red

they ate fruit
hand picked from
trees taller then
their heads

they climbed and
played all day
and when tired
they said

C
will you carry me
by the cherry trees
I can’t walk
anymore?

will you carry me
by the cherry trees
we said yes
to children we adored

V2
we looked at
bare fall trees
now without
the red

from windows
of the car
memories filled
our heads

from years of
weddings and
picnics so
I said

C
will you bury me
by the cherry trees
when it’s time
for me to go?

will you bury me
by the cherry trees
it’s the most
special place I know
