GEORGE CARRICK, Cramlington THE TREE OF LIFE Growing in life's forest Stands your tree of life Going back in history Reaching forward to the light Time to reflect To look back in time Reach forward to the future Search out your branch line Each branch tells a story Not all sound the same There are those related Yet carry a different name Onwards and upwards Pushing back time Forever going forward The past left behind With each new decade Fresh seeds are sown Young saplings are born Creating branches of their own Many branches have fallen With the passing of time Some you remember Others you have yet to find Search out your roots Follow your branch line Look back into history See what you can find Eternal life Not yours to see In the branches of the future Lies your eternal life to be.
