LEAVES OF LIFE
It was a cold blustery day
The leaves fluttered like snow,
The beauty of the scene
Was one of colour that began to grow.
I reached out and caught some
And gently toiuched one or two,
I couldn't believe my eyes
They lit up and steadily grew.
I heard singing in the background
My cold hands became warm,
Then I felt heat right through my body
This seemed impossible in this storm.
The leaves became brighter and brighter
I looked all around me nobody in sight,
I heard somebody whisper and say
Keep the leaves and press them in a book tonight.
They are the leaves of health and life
Whenever it is dark and you are sad,
Just place your hands on the leaves
You will feel as you did this day, and be glad.
For they are the leaves from the tree of life
Grown in god's garden from seeds of love,
To bring happiness, peace, and joy
To every adult and child from the good lord above.
