Something about this just felt right in my mind, and in my heart.


The story of the Lonely Tree.
The Tree was lived in the backyard of a small house. It had been there for several years. No one ever lived in the house, and there were no other trees. The Tree was always alone, and it was used to it. One day a family moved into the small house. A mom, a dad, and a son. The son loved to play in the backyard, and would always rest on the tree. The tree felt odd about this at first, but soon came to accept it. The Tree felt as if he had a new friend. The son always played alone, making the Tree wonder if he had any friends. The boy was only 6 years old. When the boy turned 11, he and his father had a talk sitting against the tree one night. The Tree couldn't understand most of what they were saying, but something was wrong. The week after that, the boy spent a whole night against the Tree crying. The dad had died of sickness. The Tree wanted to comfort the boy, his best friend, but all he could do was shelter the boy from the pain. The boy was now 16. The Tree and the boy had spent much time together after the dad had passed. The Tree felt that it understood the boy, and that the boy understood it. The boy had started bringing a girl back to the Tree with him. They spent a lot of time just talking. The Tree enjoyed the girl's company, and felt that the boy and girl shared a special bond. The boy had a heart carved into the tree with his and the girls initials carved inside of the heart. The Tree could feel love and life coming from the heart, feelings that were unfamiliar, but welcoming. The boy was now 19. The boy's mom had passed last week. The boy left the house. The tree was hurt. The Tree's best friend had left, without even saying goodbye. The Tree was lonely again, a feeling it used to welcome, but now hated. The Tree felt lost...... Several years later. The Tree was old. It felt like it was slipping away into a deep, lonely darkness. One day several people had gathered around the tree. A hole was dug in front of the Tree, and an odd shaped wooden box was being buried. All of the people were dressed darkly, and there was an odd shadow around everyone. People came up to speak, and the Tree heard it's old best friend's name mentioned several times. The Tree understood now. Inside of the box was the boy, no longer living. These people were his family and friends. The Tree never had to be lonely again, and it felt at peace. The Tree let go of any energy it had left, for it knew that whatever happened, it wouldn't be lonely.

Thank you for releasing this piece! It gave me the inspiration to write this short story. I hope you enjoy.

Wow! When I released my previous classical song, people gave it a 1 star review! Then I deleted it. The song was good, but I felt bars needed to be taken out, or edited. I felt discouraged.

Then I needed a new method of making a short and nice track. I stumbled upon this chord. D Major 7th. The most beautiful chord ever invented I say. Then, this song was born. Everything about it seemed right. Thank you so much for making a beautiful story of it, and liking it. This made my morning.
