I once thought my life would be
like a drop rippling in an endless sea.
Instead, I find no drop at all
comes from my life, into it fall.
But like a drill into the ground
slowly digging, drilling down.
My life, like roots, sink deep below
to find nourishment to overflow.
Forever forging deeper still
until its roots completely fill.
Giving life to a growing tree,
a link into eternity.
