Giving Tree

Let me tell you ‘bout this flower
That was once sickly and blue
Just could not seem to live up to
All that life had put it through

Its petals were all wilted
Its stem a graying stalk
The sun just seemed to miss it
Nor did it get raindrops

All of the other flowers
They seemed to shy away
‘Cause none of them quite understood
Why it was blue and gray

One day a tree was planted
It rose above them all
Reflected down the sunlight
Let flow drops of rainfall

And do you know that flower
That was so blue and gray
Grew strong and bright and vibrant
Since that tree came its way

My love, I am that flower
You are the giving tree
Before you I was dying
Your love and strength saved me
