THE MAPLE TREE
 

I remember many a time when I was young
Your leaves and branches gave me shade from the sun
We grew together as though we were one
And when things went wrong, to you I would run
My beautiful Maple, so strong and true
Guaranteed to cheer me when I felt blue
Telling my secrets to no one but you
Made me feel refreshed and brand new
Many years and time went by
And never stopped to wonder why
I always thought that I could fly
As I climbed your branches way up high
Life continued and I moved away
You remained in place, content to stay
Each time I returned, you were happy to play
It brings a smile to my face every single day
Then darkness came and left you alone
I no longer visited; I was all grown
You moved on, knowing I could make it on my own
But I thank you, for all the seeds that you've sown
