Sorrow's Prize...

 In the middle of play
...right out of the blue one little cutie-petutie remarked to the other,
"I miss my mommy" and the other replied "me too"
 (When I told them the more we miss someone the more we love them
smiles prevailed;-))

In life I’ve learned a thing or two
Love’s unseen depth to prove
The deeper flows the ‘missing you’
The deeper runs the love

Sometimes I do not realize
Until we are apart
How sweet the seed of sorrow’s prize
Rose-gardens in the heart

    1. Hi Sasha,
      an thank-you:) Really hoping to tackle some 'rose-gardens of the land' today. Between weather and other responsibilities i have not planted a single flower yet! I'm thankful for dependable perennials. We are enjoying the early bloomers.


Thank you for your visit to this porch. I'd love to hear if or how this post/poem touched you!
