Beautiful view of tree branches and leaves

Oh how bleak can be the road of life
For all are given a burden to bear.
And so it was for me as well
Overwhelmed I came to be.
There was one place I knew
I could find refuge there.
It wasn't far
It didn't take long.
I climbed our woods.
I sat with trees.
They welcomed me
And gently soaked up my anxiety.
The old ones had witnessed so much.
They told me not to worry.
They passed their strength to me,
Lifted my heavy heart and gave me calm.
Oak, Maple, Hickory, Elm,
Along with all their cousins
Wait for my return,
Ready to offer the comfort I seek.
