Oh Chosen One

I have
Loved you
as a greedy
frightened child
would
Fearing Poverty
on Christmas morn
Starting with
your marble
Skin-mottled head
I’ve sought treasures
in your
Tree of Life
from star-topped tip
to toes and roots
seeking soil

Like birds’ nests
hidden deep
for protection
I found your
Heart
beating Nurture
Fingertips tender
Seek courageously
Breeze and Light
Trusting
burns and blusterings
Will not be too severe

Old you are now
Not wreckless or shallow
Alone
Taken for granted
You don’t realize
how much you matter

It is
Remember
A simple evergreen
Where the wood came from
that cradled saviors sweet

I love you
Knowing
None is likely
to come
Is such Trust
Enough
to comfort You
Oh Chosen One?
