This Single Tree 11-17-11


I want to change the whole wide world
and show God's loving touch.
I know the great commission.
I want to do so much...

---

A brilliant yellow daffodil -
with color bright and full...
but how, if I have never seen -
can know how beautiful?

A peach - so juicy, succulent -
with taste that I can savor...
but how, if I have never ate -
can know its unique flavor?

A sonata in D-minor -
with music so profound...
but how, if I have never heard -
can truly know its sound?

Jesus - so perfect, wonderful -
who loves me without end...
but how, if I so stingy loved -
can know Him as a friend?

If head, I pull, from clouds above,
one day I'll understand -
this world is like a forest and,
this tree, just like a man.

Proclaim, I how, God's love to all -
and in the forest be -
when I know not the blessing 'cause
I stand in way of me?

---

Indeed, I want to change the world,
and show God's loving touch.
But change, I how, the forest when -
this single tree's too much?
