Still Standing

Updated on September 10, 2013

I stood next to my tree.. and looked as far as I could see

Planets and moons..made my soul swoon

the Lord took me on

this wonderful glide

just my reflection

was what was to be

the horizon swallowed

all that I see

upon yonder clouds

our shadows were dark

like funeral shrouds

it was just you and me

my wonderful tree
