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.
