Words are no longer standing by me.
They have fallen under the shadow of time.
As the world spins, I rest again.
My responsibilities are no longer a burden.
I have help when I need support.
Yesterday I planted a rose garden.
I watered the plants as they took root.
My favorite roses are pink and peach.
I never look for their thorns.
