A flower

One day, as I was walking,
I saw a beautiful flower,
Something so unique,
Making its beauty have such power,

It was like nothing as I had seen before,
Even in a fairy tale.
It stood out to me so much,
Even with its colours so pale.

On any other day,
I might have walked right by,
Never even given it a second look,
But that day it caught my eye.

It reminded me of something else,
Important in my life.
A friendship that was fading,
And the gap left in my life.

As I was gazing at the flower,
A thought came to my mind.
What if that flower dies?
What if a better friendship I'll never find?

So , i dug it up,
And took it with me,
planted it in my garden,
And waited for it to seed.

I planted those seeds,
Everywhere I could,
But none of them grew as well,
So still only that one stood.
It made me realize something,
Nothing I planted would be better,
Like the friendship I had,
Nobody could ever replace her.

And maybe that's what,
That flower was for,
Put her to remind me,
That there would only ever be one of her.
And every day I see that flower,
Reminding me what to do.
To put things back on track again,
Bringing back that friendship which was true...
