The Seed’s Wishes
I wish I’d grow up a lovely tree,
You would sit under my cool shade
To rest your weary body.
I wish I’d grow up a healthy tree,
Bear fruits and nourish you
I’d give myself entirely.
I wish I’d grow up a sturdy tree,
People would build houses from my branches.
Your refuge, I would be glad to be.
I wish I’d grow up a seasoned tree,
Bridges and light posts will rise from me.
I’d be along the road to light your way.
I wish I’d grow up a fine tree,
Pages would be made from my fibers ~
Books, letters, notes, songs , poetry.
I am a seed for the moment,
Wishes, and dreaming of a full life
The morning will change me.
I wish I’d grow up a parent tree.
Thousands of seeds would spring from me.
Seeds metamorphose to homes of love.
I will be your shelter, eternally.
