The Strangest Trees

I dreamt I was in a forest,
where there were the strangest trees,
they all seemed to have tiny metal leaves,
each one had a message for me.

I walked up under the first one I saw,
a branch seemed to bow down low,
and every silvery leaf glinted brightly,
with something I needed to know.

They were just words, but each one a treasure,
and I picked some to hold in my hand,
knowing these would sustain me on my journey
as I wandered about this strange land

The first one I picked had LOVE stamped on it,
when I touch it, joy fills my heart,
and the word became part of my life right then,
this was a brand new start!

The next one I picked said PEACE in small letters,
but this would be mine, I just knew,
for along the path I might meet trouble,
but this would help keep me true.

The last one I picked was not like the rest,
for on it was a face in miniature view,
and just to hold it gave me happiness untold,
for it was a picture of you!

Then I realized there was not really a forest,
the trees were only in my head,
and the leaves that I picked were gifts I already had,
not in my hand, but in my heart instead.

For Jesus gave me love when He rescued me,
and peace when He made me brand new,
and the face of the one who is the best gift of all,
oh, what a wonder, and how much I LOVE YOU!!
