Soon to Bloom

by In All Our Years

Silently the seed sits below the earth in darkness, wet and alone-

As days of sun warm the earth and seed,

soon-

Stirs and wakes,

changing completely from once to new.

As first breaths are taken and water sipped,

the sun ebbs the precious life into full bloom.

In those moments when all that matters is before you and beside you,

you realize that there is no place you would rather be

as your love surrounds all that was your seed.
