One Little Cosmos by Balisha
One little Cosmos such a pretty flower..
Enjoying the sunshine and a little shower.
Where she came from.. Mother Nature knows..
A little seed was planted and started to grow.
I knew this flower in the spring, her feathery leaves had formed..
It wasn't in the right spot, but then my cold heart warmed.
I'd leave it there this season... and watch it grow so tall..
Among the other flowers that were so very small.
It's bloomed it's little heart out and nodded in the breeze..
I love it now and dread the day that we will get a freeze.
She lives among the asters now and her color is so bright..
My fall cleanup is coming and try with all my might.
I'll not be able to save her she doesn't like the cold..
She'll wither and turn brown and die back I am told.
I learned a lesson from this flower and I'll try to tell you now..
Flowers like people.. when different...fit in to life somehow.
It's up to us to let them stay and help them with their living..
A garden small is like the world where people can be giving.
So, saying this, I'm glad she stayed and graced my garden small..
With her bright pink color shining... through seasons until fall.
The time will come when she'll be gone...before she does I pray..
She'll drop some seeds and bloom again in the month of May.
