A FLOWER GROWS IN MY GARDEN


A flower blossomed in my garden
Shines its light all through the day
Array of colours reflect the sunlight
That radiates from its heart of gold
Emiting loving vibrations

It multiplied in the years ahead
Over the country it did spread
Sowing its seed along the way
Joy and tenderness it brought forth
Each and every day

The fragrance of the flower
Is pleasing to the gods
The aroma fills the air
People come to see
The beautiIful flower that grows there

The flower is my daughter
I thank God from up above
For sending me such treasure
In my garden of love

    ...and what a wonderful flower she must be, soil delicately tilled, watered perfectly, the sun's everyday kiss and room to grow to her fullest. (Report) Reply

    This is a very touching poem. I love it - I can almost smell the scent of flowers and wonder if your daughter knows how her mother writes such a lovely poem in honour of her. Well done! (Report) Reply

The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
