Pleasant thoughts of beauty
fill my waking hours
watching you, just watching you
as you tend your beloved flowers.
I’ve watched with joy for many years
and I always feel the same
as beautiful as the flowers are
to you they can’t hold a flame.
Flowers grow from your loving care
and in the breeze I see
they seem to smile as you pass them
I think they agree with me.
I sometimes wonder as I watch
how life could be so kind
to grant me life within a world
that allowed me you to find.
And as the dusk approaches
a halo glows round your head
perhaps you are an angel
and I’m in Heaven instead.
