with tender, loving care.
Rays of the sun and a trickle of water,
blossomed a beauty so rare.
It survived like a cactus -
unfazed, tough and bold.
Perseverance at its best,
years to live, it was told.
But one day, the beautiful garden,
has lost its life and soul.
Hold on to the seeds, Mr. Gardener,
for your greenery will pull through.
