“Foliage in the Garden I”

Foliage in the Garden I

“Who Will You Send?”

“Who will you send to help me tend
The beautiful Sunflower garden again?”
My simple request to the Lord I made
As I watched the summer fade.

“For you I will search and find someone rare
Whom you can entrust with the Sunflowers’ care.
A person, like you, who’ll see in each flower
The beauty and grace, the potential and power.

And as you’re working side by side,
Remember in each other to always confide
Your hopes, your dreams, your tears and fears
Concerning each flower in your garden here.

For your goals and my goals are both the same:
To tend to their needs without fanfare or fame.
Training and guiding and providing the light
For each special flower to bloom full and bright.”

So to each dear assistant I now say, “Thank you!
I’m so glad that you were sent especially my way.
For much like the Sunflowers who in my garden grow,
So much of our success to you we both owe!”
