Just like a mighty tree

A love song for my beautiful wife

Just like a mighty tree.

The moon is waning in the sky
And soon she will be gone
She goes in circles just like we
It carries on and on
Cause everything it changes
That’s just the way it goes
Yet every day my love for you
All it can do is grow.

Everything goes in circles
But not my love for you
It travels in a upward line
And every day that’s new
It just reaches for the sky
It’s like a mighty tree
As its roots go underground
It rises endlessly.

Its branches ever reach the sky
And it’s the same for me
As my roots they stabilize
Just like that mighty tree
My love for you it climbs so high
And this will never cease
So Darling, read this song of mine
And let my words, you please.

    The roots that feed, stabilise and make the tree of love grow are unseen: Respect, trust, admiration, companionship, compassion, devotion, sacrifice, agape! I admire your tree, its tallness, its beauty, its majestic youth of love! May God keep you healthy and happy for the rest of your lives for you a beackon of inspiration for the young are!

    Lovely love poem/song. I bet your lady is most pleased. Looks as though you've fought hard to keep the rhyme in a few places, though the sentiment shines through.
