Floral Sanctuary

She sits in the garden
On a hot summer's day
Among all the flowers
The wind makes them sway

She closes her eyes
Takes a breath in, slowly hums it out
Focusing on the petals of a daisy
He's the only one she's thinking about

Every rose has its thorn
So tell me mine
I'll pluck it right off
Or let my fingers bleed trying

I want my petals to have an enchanting aroma
Want my roots to intertwine with yours
Let's make a garden, and watch our love blossom
With a little white gate, and a clear stream nearby

Push me on the swing, and I'll sing to you
A melody that will bring our garden alive
A secret haven
Created only for our love

Then we'll plant some seeds, and watch them grow
When the rains come, our souls will be quenched
Grab my hand
Let's run to our garden

Great poem! I really liked the whole garden metaphor, and the lines, "So tell me mine/ I'll pluck it right off/ or let my fingers bleed trying."
