Let this Love now be a tree
Branching to infinity
Anchored deep in the eternal me
We like leaves too, bud, then wilt
With the seasons, colour-filled quilt
Take spring buds, youth, filled with glee
Summer comes rich, both for you and me
Autumn’s tide turns with a golden glow
To pick our planted fruit and know
Winters time, white to silver, my hair does fade.
Strife too, passes like the falling leaf
Storm shakes the boughs.
With me, it’s grief
It’s my roots which steadfast to the pain
Hold the tree strong for another day gained
Through this all, we are but one
A twig, a branch, a stem, a tree
From a seed grown tall, this me
It’s light, it’s the sun towards which we strain
My soul, the seed in God’s good gain.
