I plant this seed to watch it grow
and provide everything it needs;
pulling weeds to protect my love
And giving water it needs to live.
My tender care pays off;
a tiny speck of green appears.
First view of the world above.
Time goes by as I watch it flourish.
It stretches for the sun,
growing tall, reaching high,
the plant sprouts one small bud;
A flower awaiting inside.
It unfolds revealing the magic.
The magic it held inside;
this flower that I helped come alive.
I look at my beautiful creation.
Then I tear each petal off. . .
One by one,
until there is nothing left.
