She Stands So Tall So Proud

Pure Strength!
Pure Strength!

She stands so tall so proud

branches swaying in the wind

She stands so tall so proud

never telling where she’s been

She stands so tall so proud

always doing never being

She stands so tall so proud

always running never seeing

She stands so tall so proud

no complaints never notices

She stands so tall so proud

tiny cracks giant crevices

She stands so tall so proud

always helping never ends

She stands so tall so proud

always loving best of friends

Gale force winds do blow

watch the tree begin to lean

It won’t impede her path

what is not known can not be seen

She stands so tall so proud

amazing strength from deep inside

She stands so tall so proud

once you bare it’s hard to hide

She stands so tall and weeps

I blink my eyes can it be true

So;

I stand so tall so proud

and I become a tree for you

 

Blessitude
