flower

You are my flower
My world my life my hour
You are my strength my hope and my dreams
You are my colors dashed against a wall
You are creative in me
You rise
You fall
You grow up and fall
You sleep but never stop dreaming
You see yourself beautiful to me
You see yourself being held in my hands
You see me taking pictures of you by the sand
You see shapes and shadows make you
You see love and like as the same
You see storms before they come
You smell water before it falls
You get to see me through lens of all sizes
You see me crying right before your eyes
You see my personality changed for the better
You see mending broken pieces together
You see me at concerts
You see me in hospitals
You see me at funerals
You see me at parties
You see me with friends
You see me with family
You see me from a distance
You see me close up and personal
You see me hiding when I don’t need to be
You see me gazing at my lost of memories
You see at the beginning and you see me at my endings
You see me being loved, cared for, rejected and hurt
You see me smiling, laughing and coping
You see me posing with your family pictures
You see me with your friends in the next door store window
You see me being watered with your love
You see me being fed when I just ate
You see me changing for better when I thought it was a mistake
You see me winning when I thought I was failing
You saw me failing when I thought it was winning and worth it
You saw me cry when I was mad,  sad, angry and confused
You saw me get back up to be knocked down again
You saw my strengths, my wrongs and my rights
You know me better in the end
You are my flowers of my life
