If I'll die and be reincarnated but who's no longer me,
I wish you’ll find me anywhere just like any other tree;
A tree standing tall constantly raising its heart and hands
Glorifying God with His blessings and His omnipresent guidance.
A tree which may bear fruits that you may love to see,
Offering them all to you with joy wholeheartedly;
It can still grow up with you and be nurtured with His great love
His reflection on its soul is wafted on air ---making you alive.
A tree which mayn't bear fruit and it’s hard to understand,
But other things are offered to you to the best it can;
A joy to see you and your love ones playing and resting under its shade
Your smile and love with each other are its portraits that’ll never fade.
A tree that can withstand stronger the test of time,
As birds flap their wings, their notes making it feel so fine;
If you climb it, it will show you the nature’s beauty
An ascent on it may save you and dispel your fears away.
A tree that can even stand on solitude in the wilderness,
Guarding mem'ries of souls who’re enjoying eternal happiness;
If time comes when woodmen cut it down for some reasons
For sure, its worth will still continue on the next generations.
