Our Garden of Love
Planted May 22, 1999


By Kelly S. McDonald


One year ago
You sent a little seed
It sparkled through my soul
To my heart so in need

Embedded there it held on strong
Nurtured from above
And suddenly it wasn’t long
That seed sprouted a bud

That bud within my heart
Just grew & grew & grew
I knew right from the very start
That this was something new

It bloomed into a rose of yellow
‘Friendship’ is her sweet name
Each day she’s nurtured by a fellow
The man from which she came

‘Friendship’ the thriving flower
Was as happy as could be
To see friends all around her
Called ‘Sense of Humor’, ‘Kind’ and ‘Honesty’

Next she spotted ‘Caring’
Heard ‘Respect’ say, “She’s a must”
And holding hands, in came ‘Sharing’
‘Acceptance’, ‘Patience’, ‘Wit’ and ‘Trust’

‘Understanding’ tapped her shoulder
And pointed up above
There she saw entwined all over
A deep red rose called ‘Love’

Now my soul can’t help but soar
And a song, my heart does beat
You in my life, I’m so much more
Together, I feel complete

So on this anniversary day
Of the growing seed, that you did start
I must tell you, you’ll forever stay
Deep in the garden of my heart

KellSue~
How in-bloom is your garden.
So abundant with the seeds of love.
Tended by the sharing of the gardners.
Happy Anniversary !
Beautiful.
