You

You provide soil so my roots can dig deep,

You are the raindrop that quenches and seeps;

Yours is the sunlight that draws out my bloom,

Your gift of oxygen gives my lungs room.

Yours is the breeze that cools in the heat,

You sing the music that makes my heart beat.;

Your love has planted me, right from the start –

What else can I do,

But give you my heart?

    How quickly things lose something when we don’t have “the other” to share what is special in our lives! “you” puts everything in context.

    I realize you might not feel the same but to me it sounds like a very beautiful love poem. Even if it’s dedicated to your inspiring garden, it still feels like a love poem 🙂

      Ah, this one for me was a love poem from my heart to God’s! So it would translate very well to human love as well. So your heart felt the love – I’m so glad! Even across the miles, hearts can still connect… 🙂

    Hi Melody,
    I’m here because of Holly Michael. I love both your blogs with garden photos and your poetry. We seem to be two peas from the same pod! I’d like to invite you to check mine out. Glenda http://www.glendamills.com

      Just did! I was thinking the same thing! 🙂 It is so much fun to continue to discover people from all over the world who have an appreciation and love for the beauty God has blessed us with in His creation. Have yourself a wonderful day!
