Legacy Trees

Legacy Trees

Gray skies wept on the morn you departed,
Watering our garden of memories;
Balm to refresh the seedlings you started,
Soon to be towering Legacy Trees.
These giants feast on fond recollections,
Rooted in the fertile soil of our love:
Their limbs bursting forth in all directions,
Reaching toward the mind’s golden light above.
Broad, velvety soft leaves of rainbow hues,
Basking in the glow of our reveries,
Cradle the newborn memories we choose
To treasure, as part of our life stories.
An abundant trove, a whispered reprise,
Deep in our forest of Legacy Trees.

Visits by loved ones and new friends help our forest of Legacy Trees grow and become more beautiful. Awesome, with that special touch of awe!
