The Cycle of Life
I sit and I wonder at the beauty I see
The flicker of the light through the old oak tree
Shimmering green against the pale blue sky
Watching the birds zoom through as they fly
The grass beneath is beginning to turn brown
Still you hold every leaf so it doesn’t fall down
As the air turns cooler for this time of year
I look for the colors changes we hold so dear
For many the oak is a symbol of great life
With its strength and resilience bypassing its strife
She holds on to her leaves and sheds them last
A reminder to us all, this life goes too fast
We forget the truths of the stories we are told
That life is a cycle much purer than gold.
With the understanding of life as we live through it paces, lets us never forget the stories of old that teach us the values that come from life, nature and God’s wonderful story of you. We are each His greatest creation because we reflect His love and His being. Like the old oak tree understanding the value of each leaf, God understand the value of each of us. Remember how precious you are to God and reflect His kindness wherever you go.
