Iím a healthy branch.
Iíll stay over here alone -
Enough bushes on this ranch.
Pollen will be blown.

Hey! Iím not well fed.
My pretty blooms are dying.
I think I soon will be dead.
ĎThough Iím trying.

I thought Iíd be fine Ė
No need to dress up and go.
This TV and books are mine.
With them, I can grow.

I abide in Him.
He can best nurture my soul.
Iíll read the Word Ė sing a hymn Ė
Thatís good on the whole.

But Iíll miss my friends,
Their Christian love and warm smiles.
Pastors teachingís a zoom lens,
Helps cope with lifeís trials.

Iíll not go dormant,
Or just go out of habit!
The Bibleís my informant,
My guide, the Spirit.†

No more gaping cracks in the garden of my soul.†
