Like a talented gardener you helped me grow,

Masterfully you planted the seeds,

The soft soil of my life welcomed it,

I soaked up the warm rays of your affection,

Drank in the cool crisp water of your kindness,

Embraced sadness became the fertiliser,

Under your careful gaze I bloomed,

Against your gentle touch I blossomed,

Stay with me,

With you I won’t wilt,

Tend to me,

Beside you I remain evergreen,

Let me grow alongside you.
