A great oak tree

I am unpacking at the house and came across a box of old letters and miscellaneous things from my 8-14 years. I found a slip of paper I'd taped shut like it was for me to open later, here is what was written inside:

I swang on a swing that was tied to a great oak tree, and I felt it breathing, living. So I thought, and I listened, and finally got the courage to ask it, "Do you know the meaning of life?" A great wind blew, it's branches shook, and He whispered in my ear "To be."

I wanted to capture that somewhere so I wouldn't forget it.
