Fragrant Flower

There're fragrant flowers in full bloom
With colors radiant, vibrant, bright!
Pure joy exuding while you groom

Your first glimpse captures eyes filled with light
Finding delight in the wondrous, mysterious gift!
And though given for only a while, still, is alright

So dreams are built never imagining the rifts
As you nurture, guard and lead along the way     
Help fulfill a purpose –others to uplift

Gentle pruning with care so they do not stray
Validate worth through kindness and care
For certain, one day petals will fall into disarray    

And too soon, the sun will set and awaken fear            
A time when the dreams lie forever silent; broken
Rest assure, beautiful spirits live forever, near 

Alive in roots, like fine lace woven
The legacy of love leaves an unending trail
Yet, nailed in a place secure and proven
At home in your soul where it cannot be derailed

    Anna you need to fix the end rhyme [aba/bcb/cdc/ etc.] so line 4 & 6 needs to rhyme with line 2/line 5 needs to rhyme with 7 & 9] etc. The last 4 lines start with the middle line of the verse before [d]and go [dede] I won't judge till tomorrow and I'm adding another slot for you. Light & Love
