“To The Gardener”

“To The Gardener”

Paint some color on my petals
Add a sparkle to my thorns
The color tells of deepest feeling
And of the pain the sparkle warns

Sprinkle your love on my soil
Shine your mercy on my leaves
Guide me gently as I’m growing
And hold my roots as you pull the weeds

Take my fruit so I’m not weary
Prune my branches so more may grow
Splint my weakness so I’m not dreary
And tie your band so all may know

Walk through the garden with a smile
Gaze at all that you have made
Know your labor shines through every mile
Come rest with me underneath the shade
