Dreams & Flowers🌷🌸🌹

Just as flowers blossom and wither;

Some dreams are borne

And then die;

Sometimes it’s the sun

Which scorches the flower

To its premature death;

Circumstances can do same 

To bright dreams;

They can burn out;

Cause to fade

Dreams which were once a surety;

 

But as long as the root is alive;

With the branches stretching out;

And leaves full of color;

Then there’s hope;

One flower may wither and fall off;

But another flower will bud;

No matter how hard 

The sun shines;

 Or how heavy 

The rains fall;

 A flower will surely survive;

And thrive;

To the pride

Of the plant;

 

You may find 

A precious dream of yours

Dying right before your eyes;

Slipping through your fingers;

And be powerless

To do anything about it;

But it’s not the end

Of your story;

Out of the ashes 

Will arise another;

Much bigger;

More resilient;

Much stronger;

 

Just like a newborn baby’s face

Makes all labor pain disappear;

So will the fruition

Of your latter dream

Make you forget;

The frustrations 

Of the former;

Through it all;

Keep on assuring yourself;

It is well

With your soul;

And so shall it be;

Just as you believe 

Your favorite flower

To keep on blossoming;

Remember so shall your dreams;

 

There will come a day;

When people from far and near;

Will stand in ovation

In fulfillment of 

Your beautiful dream;

Just as you 

Stop in your tracks

To admire 

Your flower.

 

Might be today,

Tomorrow or next year;

But the day

Shall surely come;

Believe that

 Come rain or shine;

Your dream of a flower;

Will open up;

In its majestic beauty;

And nothing 

Can take away its shine

When its time has come.
