Oh Lily

Oh Lily, you’re such a beauty

in quiet ways you calm my soul

how often cannot be written

nor heard.

You bring to heart rhymes

to lift spirits high

with simple words.

Oh Lily, you coax my steps to be

forward with gratitude

your beauty blooms within

calming the storms of life

which demand attention on darkest days.

My heart flutters with fear

from time to time that you

will up and disappear.

Oh Lily, how pleasant to encounter your beauty

I count the steps to you each day

feeling inadequate to voice my appreciation

but sense you know the true me.
