Your Giving Tree


I will let love for you

Grow from me like branches

So you may swing from them

When you are too giddy to be held by gravity

Climb up and hide within them

When you are feeling down

Sit beneath their cool shade

When you need a moment of rest

I will stand sturdy

While you soak up sunshine

And still so when it rains

Inhale your sorrow through my leaves

Exhale peace for you to breathe

I will be your giving tree
