Tree By The Sea

I am a tree
at the edge of the sea
wind is blowing hard
all around me
my roots have dug deep
beyond the sand
grabbing a hold
of the rock beneath land
holding tight

I am a tree
at the edge of this sea
storms blowing hard
through my branches
I can stand strong
standing straight, standing strong
my branches spread wide
reaching up toward the sky

I am a tree
placed close to the sea
I love the water
all around me
sometimes the floods
surround me with doubt
yet I do not drown
I dry out, and calm down
grateful to keep growing

I am a tree
loved by the sea
my branches spread out
far beyond me
the leaves sprout out
then the flowers
lead to fruit
shared with all
my creations
