My plant

When I found you
you were like a plant
trampled in the mud
of your tears.

I picked you up
and replanted you
in the garden
of my love.

And I let my sun
shine on you
and my rain
nourish you.

And I watched you heal
and grow, and flowered...

Now I cannot stop
looking at you -
you are the most
beautiful thing
I've ever seen.
