A Garden That Each Day I Must Tend

I walked out on our deck today,
the air so thick and hot,
and looked at the poor plants out there,
healthy-looking they were not!

I got the hose and filled my water-can
crystal water fell like rain,
and you could almost see the change,
the plants life beginning over again.

The water soaked deep down in the soil,
it would do its good within,
and nourish the plant where it can't be seen,
and bring health to each plant again.

It made me think of our love like that,
a garden that each day I must tend,
and water it with loving words and deeds,
and prayers to God without end.

For God is the one who really waters our soil,
who makes our hearts fill with love,
and the garden is the part that we see with love's eyes,
and know it is a gift from above.

God is the one who waters me with His grace,
and it overflows in my garden like heaven's dew,
for the more that God waters and nourishes me,
the more I find I love you!

God is the one who fashions our garden,
who fills it with blooms of love so true,
and each day we come and live in this garden,
where everything says how much I LOVE YOU!!

Dear Trish, this a very anointed poem. How true it is that we must all (even those of us who are not married) keep our relationships nurtured so that they remain alive and healthy. They must be tended to with loving care every day. Thank you for the very subtle reminder to take out the time today and every day to embrace those whom I love so much.
