A Tree Fell in the Garden

From death always comes life;
All things begin anew
In the garden of my soul
And in the valley that is you.
My heart begins to sing
From the marrow of my being;
And all the things I’ve ever been
I’ve laid out for you, seeing
If you’ll save me from this life
Of endless pain and dying
And bring this earth to great renown
Or leave mother nature crying.

Because if we forget what the world has given us, and the beauty in both life and death, then we’ve forgotten where we come from and where we’ll return. Everything is a circle. We just need to appreciate and care for what we have.
