You stand grand and tall above them all

Your golden petals extend with majesty and grace

As the warmth of the sun reflect on your face


My dear sweet sunflower

I like it how you always face the sun

No matter what happens, it’s your life’s mission


So very much, I’d like to be like you

Make this my life’s mission too

Keep my eyes focused on all that’s bright

Let my light shine, like the sun’s glowing light


You are a happy flower

That’s how you make us feel

For this reason, to my heart you appeal


It brings joy to my soul

when I think about you

I’m thankful for God’s wonderful world

I’m thankful for you


So blessed and in awe

of all God’s beautiful creations

The birds, the trees, the flowers, the sky

You remind me of them all and lift my spirit high


Thank you, dear sunflower

For playing your part

And shining your light inside my heart

I tried growing them in a plant pot inside my apartment, because I really didn’t have anywhere else to plant them, but there was just not enough sunlight and I may have drown them with too much water. I won’t give up though, i’ll try planting my sunflowers again next year and in Spring. I hope to have a garden someday, my daughter absolutely loves flowers. My favorite flowers are Sunflowers. […]
