The Sentry

20130718-001705.jpg

I will
Stand guard
Said
The tree
To me

I will
Watch over
Over them
Unceasingly

I will
Be
An umbrella
In the
Summer’s heat

And
Fend off
The chill
Of the
Winter’s sleet

I will
Listen
To you
When you
Come to
Pray

I will
Weep
With you
When you
Cannot
Stay

Time
Stands
Still
On this
Restful
Land

I will
Be
Your
Support
When you
Cannot
Stand

Live
Your life
With honor
Said the
Tree
To me

And I’ll do
My duty
As
You
Can see

For I am
Rooted
Here
Forever

A sentry

Standing
Guard
