For so long

Tended with love

If not always

With knowledge

Eagerly expected

As the signs increased

And grew more hopeful.

It’s only a flower

Yet it’s a symbol

Of connection

With my past;

Also of persistence;

But most powerfully

It is a symbol

Of God’s grace

Of the delicate beauty

All around us

So long as

We have the eyes

To see
