The seedling



Plant a seed in your garden,

Plant a seed in your heart,

Plant that seed for a loved one,

For someone who is far apart.

Watch the seed grow in your garden,

And cherish the love that it gives,

With patience and understanding,

You have given beauty to a thing that lives.

They wish to give you notice,

For the way you have tended that seed,

The way that you have nourished it,

And water for it to feed.

Your heart can be a barren place,

When you have lost someone above,

You must tend to it very gently,

And water it with love.

So treat it just like your seedling,

And tend to it with care,

For your loved one is always with you,

And your love they will always share.
