Enlivened Spirit by Jim Hughens

I stood like an oak
my years as a sapling long since past
my leafless limbs dry and brittle
no fruit on my branches
my roots and limbs dry and brittle
no shade do I cast
no birds in my branches sing their songs
no squirrels play in my hollows
I creak and crack in the wind
Many lighting strikes have I taken
the scars of black I bear down my soul
Until you you came like the spring rains
You watered my soul
my leaves they do green fresh as a new
my roots they do spread 
my nuts grow abundant
the birds now have come back
the squirrels frolic in my hollows
my trunk swells with anticipation
my shade is great
the winds sway my branches
I know now I have not seen my best days
more fat rings will I grow

(This poem was written by my friend Jim Hughens. 
He wanted me to post it here to see if he would get 
any comments on it. I found it to be a beautiful poem
and am trying to convince him to write more  and join,
as he does have the talent. I recieved a comment stating 
that I am trying to claim it as my own. Though comments 
are few that was the only one that did not understand what 
I was doing).

    I'm confused because on your Facebook page you said your bf Jim Hughes wrote this poem for you but here you are claiming it as your own
