The Gift of Life


When you started out
You were weak and no one had hope
Everyone had no faith
But you didn’t give up nope

The gift of life
No one should give up
If everyone died in side
Life would be an empty cup

You got discouraged everyday
Yet you keep growing tall
Believing in yourself to keep going on
Even when you fall

You grew stronger every day
No one thought you’d be that big
When you show them that when you have hope
You succeed in dreams that are big

The gift of life
No one should give up
If everyone died in side
Life would be an empty cup

Today you stand tall in the Yellow Stone Park
Replacing the trees that have died
Showing everyone that you have succeed in your dream
And now they will know when they walk by.

Adam Scrivener, if ever it thee befall

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
