In the Faraway Future


as I plant this little tree

I think of others more than me

merely now a tiny sapling

envision the shade it will bring

in order to thrive in the faraway future

this little tree today I must nurture

today it is certainly not in its prime

in the faraway future, majestic and sublime

I'll be a lady of old before a wide shade it will lend

perhaps a great grand child will lie under it and pretend

upon its branches birds will nest and sing

I smile to think of the pleasure it will bring

yes, indeed, I'll gladly plant this tree

in the faraway future, who'll remember me

I care not should I be forgot

I'll plant this little tree and love it a lot

About the Poet
I grew up in rural North Carolina, married for 38 years to my best friend and soulmate, Allen, who retired almost 17 years ago from the Air Force after 24 years of service to our beloved America. We have a daughter, Ashley ( and son-in-law, Kris) and, a son, John, and, our two beautiful grand daughters, Amelia and Haley, and Isaac, our only grandson, all blessings from God. We have four cats; Mr. Peabody, Missy, aka Middle Kitty and Tabby, aka Little Kitty, and Gracie. I've seen a lot of hard times and God has always been here for me to see me through them. I am a vessel God can use to help others in need. If I could be described in one word, it would be that I am an encourager.
