As yet another day draws to a close, I look through your mystic hues,
The sunset plays one last song, and your branches cast their shadows long.
Your roots ground me when I seek an anchor, your branches help me spread my wings,
Your leaves shade me from the harshest light, and yet stirs my soul to dreams of the night.
Rain or shine, you hold your own, strong and steady from morn to night,
In you I find the wisdom I seek; and the strength to never give up without a fight.
Stay by me so I may be calm, stay within me so I smile through it all,
Help me find joy in every moment, in the harshest of winter and the prettiest of fall.
I smile and thank the skies above, for giving me something so precious to love.
The epitome of everything good and true, is that final solace I find in you.
