The ReTREEt

Ten years old, with pen in hand
And Godís Word by my side,
I walked across the park to find
A tall gray oak with branches wide.

It beckoned me to come inside
This tall gray oak with branches wide
To come away from pain and sorrow
To learn of Godís bright new tomorrow.

I sat, curled in the trunk so strong,
My back against the bark.
I read of love and power, too
That overcomes the dark.

A quiet place amid the noise
Of city life, I found.
This special place to be alone
With no one else around.

I marked with care Godís Word so true.
I felt His peace so clear.
A rush of wind came through the leaves,
God whispered in my ear,

ďHere in this place, Iíll always meet
Face to face with you.
Iíll speak, and you will know Iím near
Youíll always know itís true

That in retreat youíll find me close,
Much closer than a brother.
Youíll learn of me from my own words
Youíll find that thereís no other

Place to be where you can see
The Beginning and the End,
And always know that I will be
Your dear and closest Friend.Ē

Sweet poem. Try to get your last lines of each stanza to have the same number of syllables.
