“Krissy’s Memory Tree”

With one life taken, another one grew
A tree planted in memory of you
Each day I sit and watch it grow
As if by chance you were there in soul
The branches sway with gentle wind
To compare you both I couldn’t begin
Flowers bloom all around your side
They seem so precious and full of life
Like the way you used to always be
Before you left and your spirit flew free
By the lakeside you sit peacefully seen
For the world to watch thru summer and spring
When winter and fall arrive with the flow
We’ll still be here just watching you grow
May you bring smiles to whomever stops by
To sit and pray by your lake view tree side
Forevermore a part of nature you’ll be
Living your life through this memory tree
