It is November; Daily I watch as the leaves fall from the poplar tree outside my window. As each leaf falls, I witness the tree gradually go to sleep for the winter. Daily I also visit my mother at the hospital as her life slowly ebbs away like the falling leaves from the tree and I realize sadly with tear filled eyes that soon that last leaf will glide away. But then, I am comforted in the knowledge that in the Spring the tree will again awaken with fresh new leaves and that I will again see my mother’s smile on the face of my children and grandchildren; and so the tree of life goes on.
