The Garden (poem)

Updated on January 18, 2016

He searches through the garden of his mind

To find that flower which defines his dreams

She’s always so much closer than she seems

What lonesome wonder makes a man so blind


He searches there along the empty streams

Where memories are lost and left behind

And future hopes are not so well refined

While somewhere someone’s there to mend his seams


She watches from the silence of her heart

Which yearns again to cry out from the dark

But fears unknown response if he might hear


As long as there are dreams they’re not apart

Within some gardens lovers leave their mark

Which brings some special meaning to a tear
