The gift of flowers is easy to give
by quick phone call, a click of the mouse
To the one whom we are thinking of.
The occasion may be a birthday
or a special time of honor and celebration
to the one whom we are proud to love.
The gift of flowers may pose a challenge to give
with nothing to celebrate, little evidence of honor
to the one whom we have to forgive.
The gift of flowers is nature’s bounty
independent of evil, glorious in beauty
grace in bloom to the one forgiven.
As a statement of love
or as a message of forgiveness
the gift of flowers is by the grace of Heaven.
