Tree of Life



There is a tree
planted by the water
where Life flows eternal,
no darkness
no sorrow,
no pain,

There is a place
near the water's edge
called Heaven,
no sin,
no loss,
no fame,

There is a God
awaiting,
no remorse,
no confusion,
no blame.

There is a space
reserved for you
near the Tree
planted by the water,
no doubts,
no confusion,
just faith.
