A Beautiful Flower - Poem by Patricia Grantham

You held a dried flower then laid it on the cold ground
With your head bowed lowly the tears began to fall down
He felt your pain and sadness then said to you with a smile
Lift up your eyes unto the hills then live life on my child

Lay your every concerns and cares gently upon My breast
Sorrows sure to come your way so try to stand lifes test
The light will always shine on you each and every day
Then you'll be able to say with joy come whatever may

A beautiful flower that had grown carefully picked from above
Planted in His lovely garden to always be looked at with love
Will never have to be nurtured nor ever to be watered again
To grow and flourish upward always having never ever to bend

    Yes we should have complete trust in God's providence! ! We are all beautiful flowers in God's garden, ever nurtured and lovingly tended to protect from withering away or fading out. A Lovely thought! A beautiful poem! ! (Report) Reply
