You clutched the ceramic pot tight,

You clutched the ceramic pot tight, Watching it, waiting, expecting.

You clutched the ceramic pot tight, Watching it, waiting, expecting. I peered in, yet I saw only damp, dark soil,

You clutched the ceramic pot tight, Watching it, waiting, expecting. I peered in, yet I saw only damp, dark soil, And I looked at you, questioning.

You told me you planted a flower,

You told me you planted a flower, And you were waiting for it to bloom.

You told me you planted a flower, And you were waiting for it to bloom. I said true beauty takes time to grow,

You told me you planted a flower, And you were waiting for it to bloom. I said true beauty takes time to grow, And you nodded, and you waited.

You clutched the ceramic pot tight,

You clutched the ceramic pot tight, And you said to me, with fear taking root,

You clutched the ceramic pot tight, And you said to me, with fear taking root, That you've waited, and saw nothing.

You clutched the ceramic pot tight, And you said to me, with fear taking root, That you've waited, and saw nothing. I watched you worry for the seed,

Your careful watering and tending,

Your careful watering and tending, All the sunlight the flower drank.

Your careful watering and tending, All the sunlight the flower drank. I told you beauty must be carefully crafted

Your careful watering and tending, All the sunlight the flower drank. I told you beauty must be carefully crafted And you nodded, and you waited.

You clutched the ceramic pot tight,

You clutched the ceramic pot tight, But it was your tears that darkened the soil,

You clutched the ceramic pot tight, But it was your tears that darkened the soil, You stared, lost, at the weak, half-bloomed flower,

You clutched the ceramic pot tight, But it was your tears that darkened the soil, You stared, lost, at the weak, half-bloomed flower, Frail leaves, dull color, and bowed-down stem.

You told me it was all for nothing,

You told me it was all for nothing, The careful watering and tending,

You told me it was all for nothing, The careful watering and tending, All the sunlight that couldn't brighten it's petals.

You told me it was all for nothing, The careful watering and tending, All the sunlight that couldn't brighten it's petals. I smiled, and gently righted its bent body.

The most beautiful flowers

The most beautiful flowers Are the first to be plucked away, I say.
