The Gardener

Poem By jackie compton

I work the field from dust to dawn.
I am the good Gardener.
The one that turns the soil.
Cultivate the earth that provide mankind every need.
It was I that planted you my flower in the garden of life.

It was I that tilled the fertile soil from dust to dawn.
Yes it was I that pulled up the negative weeds.
So they could not blot out the warmth of the sun.
Yes! It was I that cast them into the sea of forgiveness.

So they would never rise and trouble you again.
It is I that planted every seed that grows in the garden of life.

With these hands I gently place them in the warm womb of
mother earth.
there I sheltered them from the winter storm of hate.
It was I that protected them from the grub worms of injustice.
When they thirst it was I that sent down a gentle rain.

The milk of life from mother earth breast.
I cloth them in a winter white blanket of compassion.
It matter not the color of your pedals come spring.
The only thing that truely matter my child.
Is that you become a living breathing soul.
In the garden of life.

A Letter From Heaven

Dear sweet innocent child of mine.

I am writing you this letter from heaven.

The Maraton

Life is a Marathon.
That you only get to enter once.
A contest of endurance.
Ran by both the weak and the strong.

I'M Sorry

For things I might have said to you
In anger or frustration,
For times when words of mines have bee
A source of provocation.

When Time Marches On

I wonder.
When time change will we change with it
Or will time march on without us.
Leaving us behind to repeat the same old tired

Sharing The Pain

I would ask you to try and understand.
But I know you will not understand.
Out of all the things that one can share.
I would be totally dishonest.

No Words

Forgive me when I say.
I can find no word.
No words to express deep sadness
That must be felt be the lost of a child.
