Eternal Life

When I die, please
don’t cry for me
instead have hope
for I lived as an oak
let no tears fall from your eye
for trees never truly die
nor do they lie
they keep growing on and on
way beyond reason
existing until the next season
when, in conditions more pleasing,
their blossoms do show
trees never fail to grow
spreading their fiery seed to the wind
and into the fertile soil of new beginnings
I am such a tree
So don’t waste tears on me
let them instead fall on my seed
so they will grow to life
and I, will have never truly died
eternal life… and forever

The Almighty gives me a poem every once in a while, when I am quiet within myself and let him do the writing.
