Our moods tend to brighten in a blink

When of all different flowers we think.

We ignore that they will wilt,

Their fragrance will remain in us instilled.


Same goes with thoughts of people we have known

We remember kindness that to us they have shown.

Their smile and the shine in their eyes,

Even the flowers for dirt have need.

Our thoughts and deeds are the future’s seeds.

Enjoy any beauty that with your blossoming me
