The Tiny Flower


(For my love...Thank you for believing in me and helping me to grow)

In the early days of Spring
A flower emerged by a garden wall
Pushing her way up from the earth
Shaking her arms from winters thaw

How innocent she seemed to be
Her petals in a tightly woven bud
Wondering if the sun was safe
As it shone down with its love

She decided then to fan her petals
With caution always by her side
Just in case the sun wasn't as it seemed
So she could curl back up inside

But one by one as her petals stretched
She could feel the warmth within
And she knew that she would never retreat
Back into her shelter once again
