Just a Gardner
"Hello, little flower. Looking beautiful as always."
"Oh, my favorite gardner! What took you so long?"
"You know, places to go, people to see. I brought you some water."
"I love you, Mr. Gardner."
Some drops of water pour down on the little plant.
They smile at each other.
"I'm always happy when you come."
"No, little plant. I'm always happy when I come.
You're only happy in the sun.
And, right now, all I can give you is shade."
"Mr. Gardner, are you leaving again?"
"You know me better than that.
I'm only little drops of water
Dripping over your stem and beautiful petals...
God, you're so beautiful!
Sometimes, even I wish I could stay.
"Bye, Mr. Gardner. I hope you come here again soon."
