THE CARING TREE

‘THE CARING TREE’

I am The Caring Tree,

and I have survived the day.

If you climb my branches,

I am afraid I cannot stay.

If you touch me carefully,

you can feel my strength.

If you stand close to me,

you can sense my peace.

You see my body is fragile, 

tender, and very worn.

Each time you stand upon me,

a part of me is torn.

Come close my friend,

feel my strength and peace.

It is a gift I give you,

and it is what I hope to teach.

But please do not climb my branches,

as I wish to stay.

 I would like to remain here,

 for yet another day.

 THE CARING TREE

ALSO ENJOY PLENTY OF SELF-CARE THROUGHOUT DECEMBER!
