The Garden Within

The Garden Within

Every thorn has its rose even
if at times it doesn’t show.
And every flower has its hour
pass until it wilts and waits.
Always, though, the rose shows—
however late—and forever there
will be other flowers growing—
to prune, to shelter, to enjoy.
Time teaches the art of patient
gardening: to tend the gardens
we love—especially that within.
