Trees - Poem by Paul Gerard Reed

I stand firm here
Watch as life goes by
And I have to let you go;

My feet are in the earth
I can only sway in the winds
As they sweep to and fro;

What is the meaning of eternity
As men make their mistakes
I watch them come and go;

My arms find life each Spring
But I cannot wrap them around you
I must let you go;

The earth spins and tilts
But I stand firm here
And I must let you go.
