It remained there with the roots dormant
Until one fortunate day it was spotted
The now withered flower
Slowly, slowly started to grow leaves
Then came few petals
It was not an easy task
but the new owner kept on trying
until the flower was back to life.
What a beautiful flower
Tender care and
the right amount of everything
The flower blossomed.
New branches grew
New petals bloomed.
I thank you for reviving me
So much I have been through
So little I could do to save myself
I have been stubborn, much stubborn
You had hope with me
although many times you have wanted to give up.
Through storms you have sheltered me
Through droughts you have watered me
Through extreme sunshine you have shaded me
Today I stand
Getting older, becoming more fragile
You still stand by me
And I will always remain your favourite flower.
