Your Garden

Who would have known
Such beautiful flowers 
Could grow from the dark
Out of your pain
Suffering 

I walk through your garden
Smell the breath of you
The words spoken 
Gentle touch and breezes
The color of your dreams
My heart aches
My spirit rises with your scent
Your roots permeate 
Reach within me
Grab onto my soul

I lay down upon your soil
Listen to your flowers whisper
Feel your moisture 
You soak into my skin
Living within my pores
There is a rhythm
You are organic
Ever changing
Subtle and bold
Serene
Yet demanding

I am constantly surprised
Ever changing before my eyes 
Majestic and soft
My place of comfort
Renewal 
Rebirth
A safe haven
Beyond life's storms
Yours is a magical Garden
Blooming in all seasons

I will tend to your garden
Remove the weeds
Water
Plant new seeds
Reach into your soil
I will be your Sun
The air you breath

I could live a million years
Still
I would never wish
To leave your garden

Dedicated to my Sweetie
