The seed of love God placed in me,
He whispered, it can become a tree.
I placed it close within my heart,
And sought to nourish
my tiny start.
thoughts I began,
To see another, and make a plan.
Not me but her I thought and went,
I gave my love, my time well spent.
The start became a little bloom,
The love within dispelled my gloom.
Blue skies and rainbows I thought to bring,
I stopped and chose to sweetly sing.
The way to love I found in thee,
And so my bloom became
I sought a little at a time,
give and be, to sweetly shine.
by inch and day by day,
I grew with love as I bent to pray.
I felt the pain of loneliness,
You said look up and seek to bless.
And so I went again to see,
Who was waiting for love from me.
I forgot myself and grew in light,
My leaves and branches shining bright.
Seasons of life came and went,
My love for you was
And so at last I stood with you,
The tree within, the place I knew.
My daughter behold the fruit you bring,
Your love has made the angels sing.
The more you gave the greater you grew,
You return at last a daughter true.
I joy in all that we have known,
Behold my plan, the seed has grown.
I call you forever
my faithful tree,
Come forth my daughter and rest with me
