My Garden MAG

By Unknown, Unknown, Unknown

   The broom can pick up the vase you threw

But the rose can't be put back together

Because some things can't be glued.

Maybe you should replant your roots

In someone else's garden.

Let someone else rain and shine on you.

Because I tried to be your sun

But you were never my moon.

You never grew for me or even opened up.

I ignored the weeds that grew around you,

I even pulled some out.

My knees are still dirty from all the times

I bent down to help you.

You undeniably pricked my innocent fingers

So many times,

But I always came back to replenish you.

Unrelinquished love closed the gate

And the stain won't come out of my knees.
