I walk the woods
letting my thoughts
lead the way.
my eyes are drawn
in shades of
as they rest there
in the evening light.
Who were they
And why were they
just left in this tree?
I let the answer be
They must have been
Here I am, waiting for my chance to bloom.
Today, I want the sun to shine on me.
I will be great, if you give me some room;
I want to be the best you’ll ever see!
My child, all my creations are like flowers.
Blooming is just a natural thing to you.
It’s time to be yourself. You have the power.
Trusting in Me is all you have to do.
But I’ve wanted to live out many dreams,
Thinking others were so much better than me;
Prettier, stronger, is how it always seems.
It’s them, I think, I wish that I could be.
It’s time. Step out of the shadows of gloom.
You never needed to compete.
You’re beautiful just the way you are.
Now it’s your time to bloom!
Sweet smell of blossoms fill the air.
Warmth of the sunshine makes me smile.
Tender leaves fill branches once bare.
I think I’ll linger here awhile.
Jogger runs past with rapid pace
Recorded music in her ear.
So grateful I’m not in her race.
Content with songs of birds I hear.
Captured beauty. Stored it away.
Saving it for a raining day.
Today’s the day, I find my way.
Today’s the day, my path will clear.
Today is different than yesterday,
Today, I walk with you near.
Child, the other paths weren’t wrong,
Each one helped you to find your way.
You say you searched for me so long,
But, I’ve been with you every day.
Thank you, then, if you’ve been my guide.
I’m always here, right by your side.
