A Child's Gift

She asked if she could take
blossoms from the cherry tree
She cut up an old cereal box
she was as happy as could be

I saw her stick the blossoms
all around a cardboard square
In the centre of the frame
she placed a picture there

She said 'this is for you but
the flowers will fade fast'
A child's gift so special
the memory will always last
