Hearts in the Garden

"Heart of the Butterfly"
by Atlanta Marie Carrera
Hearts in the Garden
I leave you my heart.
Take care of my love.
I’ve planted it here,
in the garden, to grow.
On butterfly wings,
my heart now soars
to skies up above,
my heart in the clouds.
Love flows through my heart
like wind in the leaves.
My heart is a fountain
outpouring with love.

Build on my strength
use my heart as a brick.
A promise of love,
my heart written in stone.
Like a mirror reflecting
you see my heart in the stream.
It is filled with my love
and given to you.
Find my heart in the garden.
Show the world what you see.
Share the love that I gave you.
That’s how you send it to me.
