Tree Of Love

O beautiful tree of love
How majestic are your branches
Reaching toward Heaven's kiss
And in the depths of the earth
Your mighty roots search for the source of life
Drinking from the eternal spring of goodness
Giving of your fruit
To bless those who worship you
I bow down in adoration
And raise my hands in praise of your magnificent glory
Let me rest in the curve of your branches
Embrace me in the strength of you arms
Protect me from the storms of hatred
Lift me up to see the light of world
As a seed you were conceived
In the bosom of God's heart
A thought
A word spoken
A dream of better tomorrows
O beautiful tree of love
Shelter me in your blessed womb
And let me be your child

Kathy you are a very good person.As the Bible says that a good person brings out goodness from his store of goodness,your poem shows how good you are...
It is a really beautiful piece.
Lots of love

This is a wonderfull and touching poem
this is so full of life and wisdom.
And - I like the way you sat it up....

For about 5 years ago i wrote a poem about trees
and I have found it and I would like you to read it
because I might have had ( still have )
this special and uniq feelings about tress
as you have here.....

May your day be wonderfull

Tree - I thank you

You big and proud tree
how glad you must be
you prossess so much
knowing the history
whisper the word of wise
sending the warmest energy

your stem so robust
your soul so worthy
to give life and energy
believe - to be that proud

your root so well burried
a basis in mother earth
for even though we cant see
this is your life too

your branches reach up high
to our heavenly father
tells us through hissing
the word of wisdom
you big and proud tree

I thank you

How lovely... I'd love to use this poem as an inscription on something, like a photo of a tree or leaf... gorgeously written. *applauds*

your poem is like a cool spray of water in the hot summer. it gives me positive vibration.

The tree of life which God made available to Adam and Eve in the Garden, to give them eternal life. But they chose badly. Then came Jesus and another chance for humankind. This is a wonderful, beautiful, life-affirming, hope-filled poem. Great write.
