I

came from a tall, spanning tree
loving, caring, supporting.
It abounded with good fruit.
I was a seed that was planted,
nurtured, watered, fertilized.
I budded and grew.
I was a young shoot that saw birds,
butterflies, bees, grasses.
They became my friends.
I met several weathers,
strong winds, droughts, roaring storms.
I developed.
Now, this is what I am and
for all these things,
I thank God.
