Flowers in the garden

Flowers in the garden

I'm a seed.

Plant me deep. Water me. Give me proper light and attention.

Show me, love, by touching the soil you plated me in. Pray over me. Sing to me. Be intentional when you interact with me.

When my leaves start to bud, give me a grin. You know, the one that shows you're proud of yourself and me because you helped me get here.

As I blossom, grow, and spread my leaves. Be there for me. I need you, just like you need me. We are both flowers in the garden. May we both do for each other what we need at the most precise time.
