My Flower - Love Poem

Delicate Flower
Delicate Flower | Source

I hastened to press myself upon you

Wanting a bond and hoping to break through.

Seems to be the oldest cliché of all

One step forward then two steps back we fall.

Know I’m here for you if you should decide

You no longer need to run and to hide.



My child my friend my one to behold

Something special is nigh is what I was told.

Little flower so delicate in a troubled world

Hide lacy petals and shrink away - terror is here

Tremble with the wind but not out of fear

Whispered rains can soothe your weary soul

Sleep soundly sweet baby, sleep sound tonight.
