A few years ago, I started down a forested
path from whence I will never return. Here is a
compilation of that journey, and all the people I have
met along the way. Peace to them all.
There's a tree that grows within my house,
a tree with many lives;
It holds within it's great branches
a tale that makes it thrive.
Among it's leaves are many faces
of those from whom I came;
It's bark is the strength of family
it's roots became my name.
This tree is very precious
it has lived untold years;
It will live on in life and memory,
and bring both joy and tears.
My family tree is a treasure
that I'll pass on to mine;
They'll nurture it and make it grow
until the end of time.
I would like to thank SliderBlackRose for his helpful input in building
this site. If it weren't for him, my brains would be all over
the floor and the computer would be out the window.
