Life is like a flower
that starts out from a seed
it needs some love to make it grow
and help it to succeed

It becomes a tiny sapling
that plants its little roots
then from the stems
buds soon grow
with leaves and little shoots

As time goes by a petal forms
that’s just how nature grows
before too long that little bud
evolves into a rose

A beautiful red flower
sits atop a loving stem
from Spring and all through Summer
till Autumn comes and then

pure white frost adorns that once
so fiery crimson head
then age begins to take its toll
and soon the Rose is dead

But while the flower was blooming
and nature forms the chain
her seed is being sown
And life begins again
