Author requests article critique
I entered the garden through the gate, to see what lie ahead and there lay a patchwork quilt of flowers, each kind in its own bed.
There were grassy walkways in between, inviting me to come inside, to touch the blossoms, and smell the fragrance, in here I could rest and abide.
A bed of flower, tall and graceful, nodded and beckoned to me, for they had a secret they wanted to whisper, one that would set me free.
I tiptoed over in the quiet, to see what they'd say in my ear, and they said 'pick one of us to take with you, for the love of your life is near'.
So I pick one blossom and continued on, past flowers of lavender-blue, and picked one of those for my bouquet, for it stood for a love so true.
Further on was a bed of blooms, they glowed in the morning light, and I picked one to add to those in my arms, for it was hope so bright.
I added a pink bloom, for it was joy, to add to my armful of blooms, and the yellow of peace, and bright red of love, for these there was always room.
By now I was at the end of the path, and around the last corner I knew, that I would see the desire of my heart, for that's where I would find you!
Oh, my heart leaped for joy, and I ran to your side, giving my flowers to you, and we walked on together, knowing that this bouquet would always be new.
For the flowers weren't blooms that grow and die, they were all just a part,
of all the love and joy and peace that I felt when I gave you my heart.
Now every day we go into the garden that God provides new every day, and pick a brand new bouquet of flowers to accompany us on our way.
This joy that I feel, this dream that I live, is all a gift from above, for God gave us each one to the other, joined forever in our love.
