Come into the garden

Come into the garden and watch the flowers bloom.

Each movement and millimeter of growth runs before

Your eyes like time-lapse photography.

You can lay your head back and see the stars

as they follow their cosmic path.

You feel like you’ve been waiting for far too long.

But if you only knew it, you’ve been here for eons.

So are these last few moments too hard to bear?

Is it so hard to relax in my arms and enjoy this time of peace?

Soon you will get your wings, your freedom.

You will launch yourself from the top of the tallest tree

And feel the weight lift from your chest.

But for the moment lets just sit in the garden and watch the flowers bloom.
