The Tree Of Life - We Are One

The Tree Of Life
We Are One

 The Tree of Life
What an awesome site to see
But what does it say
To you and me

For you
I cannot speak
But for me a life lesson
To never break

For every tree I view
It's my own family before me
But this one has
A special lesson for you to see

Lets Start at the beginning
Where the foundation is set
The roots are strong
For what is to come yet

As with this tree
The ground may give way
Yet the roots search for life
For the family to stay

The elders no longer
Draw a living breath
But they still support
Even beyond their death

The branches go off
In their own direction
Without the whole tree
It won't achieve perfection

But this picture is special
It reflects the start of being
No longer can physically feed
But yet offers support ever lasting

I see my own family tree
Lost it's original beauty and shape
Because limbs have been cut off
Like an ugly torn drape

It's not our decision
As to who stays or goes
God put us together
Why? Well only He knows

We all have disagreements
And may be best for the physical distance
But to proclaim not family
Is turning on God with angry resistance

So before you cut off
That family tree limb
Remember who placed it there
You think you know better than Him?

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
