Like a Tree

Like a Tree

“Like a Tree”

Toss a seed in the ground,
Well, sure….that’s a breeze,
But if you want them to grow strong,
you better roll up your sleeves!

Put in some effort,
some sweat and some care,
a whole lot of love,
and a few silent prayers.

We can’t change their weather,
when they’re younger or older,
or on steamy hot Saturdays,
or in winter when it’s colder.

Trust the time you have spent,
as you care for their roots,
it’ll feel hard in some moments,
but will bear all the sweet fruits.

With some luck and some love,
just wait and you’ll see,
your child….like that seed,
will rise strong like a tree.
