The flower of love


We have lost a precious flower

We both planted many years ago

We both worked very hard to protect it

We were very happy to see it grow


When it was tiny and very weak

We both protected it day after day

We watched our flower develop

Until Mother Nature took it away


It broke our hearts into pieces

We both thought it would last

But alas it was impossible

For the dye had already been cast


We both thought we would raise our flower

Until our precious flower fell ill

It was next morning we found it

Upon the ground the flower lay still


Although we had lost our precious flower

The flower seeds were left behind

Now all the seedlings we shall cherish

For our flower will always be on our mind
