A Weathered Tree

Two beautiful trees on a hill that died Two beautiful trees for whom I cried They weathered the seasons through the years They stood the test of time And weathered all the storms just fine When our life is none And our time on earth is done When we have stood the test of time Like the trees we weathered just fine. For Sandra on the loss of her parents

I love the comparison to the trees as it puts our lives and how we must stand into perspective. Very clear and always a gentle smooth flow to your words. Michael
