Ill let the tears and petals fall

Even if in the night

When they fall

They will not be seen

But what they will reveal

Is the ripe swollen berry

Hanging inside  from the thick hearty stem unseen

I will let my tears and petals fall

I’ll let your light soak in

 

Hold my arms like leaves lifted in prayers to the sun

I will let my tears and petals fall

Let me show you what you have done

You have picked held and plucked me from root, stem to flower tip

I will let my tears and petals fall,  lovingly wilt in your grip

 

In this garden I must grow now

In the bed you have so finely laid pure

My tender green thumb you have been,  my fruit with you I must share

I hope my soul delivers I hope you find  it suits

For you watched my tears and petals fall

And with them my love fell too

You collected them in your tender hands

You blossomed me with love

You love me when my tears and petals fall

You have made this dark and delicate flower bloom from its tightly wound bud
