this poem represents something you have lost can come back to, yet when it
does, you can not truly accept what it is

the encounter brings a fimilarity to many people including myself. when you
have those moments when you see someone that you either hardly know or knew
better than yourself and yet you have drifted apart, and you see them
there. in front of you as if you want to run up to them and greet them yet
something unexplainably stops you in mid tracks. what is it that always
makes you stop?

this poem may look short but it has alot of meaning like when he talks
about the resurrected tree he is talking about Jesus
