Safekeeping

safekeeping

We will embrace it steadfastly,
safeguard it from strong winds,
support it when heavy rains
drench and weigh it down.

We will shield it from winter snows,
lift it beyond reach of
those who might destroy it,
oblivious to its worth.

We will surround it with new growth,
conceal it with soft green leaves
as our branches wake up
in the warm springtime air.

We await your return
with your sweet songs renewed.
We’ll relinquish our charge back to you
as the precious cycle

begins anew.
