Pretty Flower (Children)


I found a pretty flower,
food for bees and butterflies.
But when I gave it to my mom,
it put tears in Mommy's eyes.

Why are mommies like that?
Pretty things can make them cry
just like a very sad thing.
Some day, will I know why?

She said as we get older,
things don't all make sense...
but tears from pretty flowers
are most welcomed precious guests.
