The Seedling



The seed of love
you've planted
in my heart.
Roots spring forth
surging, searching
for nourishment.
Then the stem
bursts upward
towards your light.
With tender care,
you watered it
and watched it grow.
A bud, so fragile,
so determined
swelling into fullness.
Green healing leaves
reach out
unfolding one by one.
The soft, pink petals
out of love, as are you,
envelope my heart.
The flower
then seeds your
love through
my whole being.
As our blossom
and completes us.
