Blue Lillyflower

by therinamartins

How far will you run, my love?

With your locks bouncing in the sunnyshine? Sweetheart, come and take my hand, Show me the pleasures of this earth An adult does miss with everyday's cares.

Show me the wonders seen from your little heart.

The innocent beauty only you can see. Teach me to return to my previous purity. To cherish the tiny thistle, and the lone tree. To admire how the clouds play in the sky.

My little lillyflower- my dearest

I see what I once was in your eyes- In your wonder awed eyes. Let me learn again to be wondered- Amazed- Entranced by it all.

Show me that the trials are fleeting

That there is no care greater than loving each other. Take my hand, oh little lillyflower. Lead me in the happiest of ways, lush and pure. Make my heart flutter as it once did.

With the simplest of beauty I see.

And force me to remember when I worried not. When I was once as carefree as you, my love. When I ran in glee and pleasure, Rejoicing the splendor around me.

When darkness was a rarity.

My tiny blue lillyflower- My sweetest, My love, my dear. Will I ever see the way you do? Will I ever love the way you do? Will I ever?

So, stay with me, my blue lillyflower.

Let your child light shine on me. Brighten my eyes, Open my barred doors. Teach me to love again.

@Housecat I have an awkward way of showing my affection in real life, physically. So I try to make up for it through my words. Thank you for the lovely and detailed comment.

@therinamartins this such a wonderful and soulful poem, and I can't help but read it, over and over. Your love and appreciation for your niece is radiated through every word. I feel like it's the mark of an amazing poet when their energy and emotion are felt through reading their work. This was pure and good, and all things wholesome. Nice job.

@therinamartins I couldn't agree with @bernardtwindwil more! God has granted you with a spectacular talent in writing, you seem to take even just one word and make it into a beautiful story . Your word's are that of a blooming flower. Becoming more and more mature and beautiful with every passing day. Don't ever think you have to pluck your flower to make room for others. There's room for all in this garden:)

@therinamartins With God as your ghost writer, I see you as a winner. This could explain some questions I have, Like, Where does this young tween dive down to get such pearls of wisdom and depth of feeling. I hope you know you are larger than the sum of your parts.
