When planting the seeds
In your garden of life,
Be sure that you don’t forget flowers –
The beauty of the colours
That every life needs
To glow throughout all the dark hours
Bright yellows that kindle
A confident hope;
The radiant gold of ideals,
Show a bright cheerful outlook,
A sunny-day warmth,
Understanding, and strength that is real.
Of a fantasy world,
With its make-believe, magic, and spells,
Enchantments and charms,
And daydreams too tender to tell.
Soft blues that speak
Of a true loyalty,
Of a yearning for sweet peace of mind,
Of sensitive feelings
From a heart that is faithful and kind.
Reds that reveal
A passion for life –
The urge to live life full and free
Impulsive and active
And hungry for love,
For life, and all it should be.
Each colour will have
Its own story to tell,
As you sit in your garden and see
The colours of living
The glorious bloom
That tell you what joy life can be.
