014: The Garden

Rating: 4.8
You are my Lily, I am your Rose
In our Garden we repose
I watch you blossom
Day and Night
To care for you is what I like

To give you shelter, to see you fed
To lie together, in our bed
To see the seasons, come and go
Is all I'll ever want, you know
My Love for you, will never fail
Your Beauty and Perfume prevail

Two flowers both from different pots
Arranged together as a show
Your scent was all that I could smell
No other fragrance, could I tell
We've been together, since that night
We met each other long ago

The seeds we sowed in later days
Have grown in their separate ways
Each different, but, in a way, the same.
Reflections of those other plants
From which we hope they'll gain

I hope their Garden grows like ours
So love can blossom like the flowers
And in their turn produce new buds,
That grow themselves,
To be Loved...

Very nice to read this poem. I like it really very much. After reading this poem, I read it again. It gives your reader the feeling that you are the one person that should be among our best friends. Only bright poets with a truly loving heart can make this type of masterpieces. If my votes would register, I would give it a 10 + (but since I joined the web site, my first 3 votes went fine and ever since voting became impossible)

This is one of the more enjoyable poems I have read in awhile, Colin, and I like very much how you told this fine tale metaphorically in your outstadning poem. I also liked your author's note, kindly giving us readers a bit of the 'back story' behind this fine poem. I always enjoy expressive poems and this one was a genuine delight to read. Carl.

Two differences to make one of the same. We are all a part of the whole in some way or another. Good poem and nice to read. DC
