The Tree Of Life

Each man is as a tree, created by God,

Unique as it reaches to the heavens above.

For, the tree of life, it blossoms, it grows,

From its roots to the heavens, its majesty shows.

The tree of life, kept strong as it grew,

Shed the old, and began to renew.

With Christ as its roots, that we do not see,

Providing the strength, for each special tree.

With rings of age, trial hidden within - sturdy it stays.

Through life’s stormy days - gently it sways.

Its bark is a shield, to weather the strife,

But, it is the blood that gives precious life.

And, if its trunk grows crooked - may it not fall,

As it searches for heaven - and tries to stand tall.

For, the tree of life, its branches span wide,

Though the tree can be hurt, by those at its side.

But, a broken branch, like a broken heart,

Can make the tree stronger, though it’s ripped apart.

Left alone, it can wither, and most surely die,

As tears, from heaven, rain down - in great cry.

But, cared for, it grows – still mighty and strong,

Its fruits can be many, though its life not long.

For, from a single tree, fruit and seed come in plenty,

Food... shelter...air... soil fertility - so abundantly.

And, though the tree can be cut, shoots continue to sprout,

For, the tree of life can not be put out!

And when the time comes, its wood will burn bright,

For, the tree of life gives warmth and eternal light.

And if lightning strikes, and life on Earth stops,

I’ll reap what I’ve sown as seeds for my crops.

For, the tree of life, it blossoms, it grows,

From its roots to the heavens, it majesty shows.

Yes, each tree is special, for it is true,

That Christ died on the tree -

For me - and for you!
