Dr. Debasish Mridha


Life is a Tall, Tender Tree


For if life is a tall tender tree,
For then, life is joy, life is free.
The tree is dancing in the air, sunny or showers,
With his joy, with his love, with his flowers.

For if life is a tall tender tree,
There is no pain or gain, she or he.
No complaining, only serving and caring.
Creating life for joy of sharing.

For if life is a tall tender tree,
For then, there are no you and me.
We are nature; we are love; we are beauty.
Giving and loving is our eternal duty.

    This is one of my favorites. I like the simplification of life and the emphasis that this comes with giving love. (Report) Reply

    This poem is very meaningful. The metaphoric comparison of life to a tree and how nature has no worries but to serve others that may need its covering or protection or its oxygen to breathe yet it stands tall with not much worries..and like nature it gives and express love naturally..no strings attached.

    Very profound comparison of life as viewed by the nature of a tree. The tree has seasons and has both a defined and undefined purpose. Thought provoking! (Report) Reply
