My life is like a tree - a poem by Jillian Ochoa

My Life Is Like A Tree

My life is like a tree

Without You there would be no Me

For you are the trunk that makes me whole

God is the water that grows my soul

Our children and grandchildren are the branches reaching the sky

The roots are all the years together passing us by

The leaves are all of my blessings

Which stay for a season then fall to the ground

Only to be raked up and burned

with an ember smell and a crackling sound

But all through the loss of the leaves and the seasons

You keep me together and strong with so many reasons
