My PreciousTree

 

I look at youWhat do I see

So tall, so strong, so beautiful

You look at meWhat do you see

A meek, mild and humbled soul  

My precious tree

So proud, so wise, so full of life

After the fiery brushes have torched your sacred limbs throughout the years

You remain unscarred, unharmed, unmoved

You have endured all the elements of our changing world

You have felt the cruel, uncaring behavior of human nature

Yet you still are the mighty one, the brave one, the core of everlasting life

As I rest upon your weathered feet

I close my eyes and hear the energy of the winds 

Whispering through your leaves

As your branches gently sway

You reveal your power, your strength, and your dignity

I can feel your desire to nourish my soul

You cast your shadows against the blazing sun

As you protect me from the perils of nature’s wrath

I am forever vulnerable to you

Oh Precious Tree

I seek to you my soul to free

I shall love you as you love me

I shall nourish you with more knowledge of our changing Universe

As you nourish my Spirit

You shall glorify me with your everlasting presence

Oh Precious Tree

My Precious Tree

I look at youWhat do I see

So tall, so strong, so beautiful

You look at meWhat do you see

So meek, so mild, so humble

My precious tree

So proud, so wise, so full of life

Throughout the years

After the fiery brushes have torched your sacred limbs

You remain unscarred, unharmed, unmoved

You have endured all the elements of our changing world

You have felt the cruel, uncaring behavior of human nature

Yet you still are the mighty one, the brave one,

You are the core of everlasting life

As I rest upon your weathered roots

 I close my eyes and hear the energy of the winds

Whispering through your leaves

As your branches gently sway

You reveal your power, your strength, and your dignity

I can feel your desire to nourish my soul

You cast your shadows against the blazing sun

As you protect me from the perils of nature’s wrath

I am forever vulnerable to you

Oh Precious Tree

I seek to you my soul to free

I shall love you as you love me

I shall nourish you with more knowledge of our changing Universe

As you shall nourish my Spirit

And glorify me with your everlasting presence

Oh Precious Tree
