A pastel green, peeks out from a seeds hard shell,
So too, from my heart, as loves dew fell.
Overnight a tender shoot springs, seeking light,
Tenderness - It's love at first sight.
Pushing rocks aside, great might has the stem green,
The force of love, nothing can come in between!
The spreading leaves, light and warmth do nourish,
Passionate embraces, shining eyes, moments to cherish.
Sometimes to grow, as a sturdy tree, tall and old.
Sometimes to wither, in winters cruel cold.
And yet there's the promise of spring
Shades of green, yet again to bring.
Love can ebb, It can flow,
But it's green, always to grow...
