Garden of the Heart
Like the earth, fertile when nourished;
Our Hearts can grow sweet fruits,† and be tilled to flourish.
The soil must be tended, by gardeners called parents;
Protected, kept sacred, by love thatís inherent;
The seedling must be guarded from invasion by weeds;
Given light and water and the minerals it needs.
Until it is strong enough to stand on itís own;
The young plant must take in the garden of its home.
And likewise our hearts need good old fashion tending;
Or else it will be hurt, when immature for defending.
Because storms are likely to set in and threaten itís sanctity;
Emotions can damage or protect itís safety.
And when finally full grown and standing so strong.
The well gardened heart will bear fruits for long.
