Christmas Tree

We cut it down in the woods
We put it up in our home
There it stood unencumbered
Just a tree, evergreen

We covered it with precious memories
with ornaments and with lights
under it we put our treasures
gifts to bring our loved ones joy

During many celebrations
It stood among us, tall and proud
we enjoyed all of the memories
the adornment and the light

But the time came, and it stands naked
all alone, adornment gone
do not forget its truest beauty
again a tree, still glorious
