Fragile Beauty

I have seen the strength you have
To stand even if your weakness shows
Trying to stay up no matter what comes
Bearing up to what God only knows.

Smooth to the touch, not showing strain
Deeply rooted, hoping it is enough
Others might come to lean upon you
You try to hold them, try to be tough.

Maybe you protect them from the hurtful
Take the heat to give others some shade
In the rain, the wind or even the snow
You stand your ground, decisions made.

Such a beautiful thing, seeing you grow
To have watched you reach out, so nice
Yet your delicate grace touches my heart
A fragile beauty, even covered in ice.
