Every Tree I Planted

.

 

I waited long, too long, it seemed

And nothing came to flower

My work, my passion and my dreams

Were locked in some far tower

.

“Be brave, walk not by sight, but faith”

At last, I finally heard

I left the crowd and quit the race

And listened to the Word

.

And now the spring has come at last

And opened up the tomb

Disappointment now is past

And every tree I planted is in bloom

.

Look here and there and everywhere

And see the vivid color

The seed explodes into the vine

And light goes on forever

.

And every day the postman brings

More dividends and praise

My friends all write and come around

And talk of our old ways

.

I dreamed of having such a day

To be by love surrounded

With afternoons to run and play

With interest all compounded

.

The sunlight rushes through the panes

And glory fills the room

And I am shocked to see the world

When every tree I planted is in bloom.
