the fragrant scent of rosemary
mixed with lavender and thyme
the violet and the peony
will lift this heart of mine .
the delphinium and the pure white rose
will provide beauty for my eyes
and the corner where my lilac grows
means more than i realised .
the fishpond with its waterfall
the bright colours of the koi
the golden showers that climb my walls
once more i will enjoy .
the butterflies on my buddlehia
sip nectar as they rest
bee's flit amongst my dahlia
so many garden guests .
the old wooden table neath the tree
where i love to sit and write
the wishing well and its history
still fills me with delight .
and as i sit in my eden lord
once more words of love i'll hear
the written and the spoken word
of those i hold so dear .
so sweetest lord i'm thanking you
from deep within this heart of mine
for the chance to make my dreams come true
and the precious gift of time .
