Life From a Seed...
I began alone in a home of damp soil
Beginning a life filled with helpless turmoil
Until one day I felt something grow
Fearing a shovel or death by a hoe
Then in all wonder, a beautiful light
And others much like me but not just alike
I bathed in the beauty of a heavenly sun
And there I discovered my life had begun
Days and then months, then years stumbled on
Until I was tall, and the others were gone
Majestic I felt and much taller since birth,
With ultimate care for my father, the earth.
Now every year passes--They seem only days
And blessed I am for God's given praise.
While two glowing lovers sit under my hair
They show me what love is, an ultimate care,
As the rain trickled onto my branches like tears
I wondered in loathing my long lonesome years
Why couldn't I share such caring relations
When two glowing lovers had such gifted sensations.
Then I look down unto the lovers that be
Carving "I Love You" as they sat under me.
