Graeme Allwright - At the heart of the tree


Original Title: "Au coeur de l'arbre"

At the heart of the tree, there is the fruit
At the heart of the fruit, there is the seed
At the heart of the seeds, there is life
And the next season

At the heart of man, there is love
At the heart of love, there is sorrow
At the heart of sorrows, there is the day
That morning brings back

At the heart of the tree, there is wood
At the heart of wood, there is the plank
And from two planks, a cross is made
that holds God in its branches

At the heart of shadow, there is the night
At the hearts of nights, it's your absence
If I fall asleep, your light shines
You are in the silence
