That tiny yearning deep inside
is a dream that needs watering – even if by tears
fertilizing by the hope in possibility
and time though the amount of it may make you anxious.
As it awakens and stretches
it finds your loving care
has provided a welcoming place to grow
Timid at first, it may slowly reach for watering or fertilizing
as you hope and pray that one day
you’ll meet it.
As you wait, you care for it
because you believe
in strength through growth
As you wait, you imagine
because you know that the future, possibility and opportunity
will be the byproducts of its blooms.
Then one day as you continue
living your everyday life
You are captured by its arrival!
You now realize
that the tiny yearning deep inside
needed YOU – as much as you needed IT.
