My green thumb,

I hate to think of
what I would become
Without your hands to guide me

through the mud and rain
It’s a sorry, sorry sight.
I’ll plant a kiss upon the forehead of the girl
whose mysteries unfold like

blossoms on a day in spring
It’s a beauty, beauty sight.


You shovel hard,

the golden rule
and it sometimes smarts
To peel away the layers
of my throbbing heart
It’s a gory, gory sight.
Let me be your garden gnome,

I’ll clean your knees,
I’ll clean our home
Anything to keep you turning,
tilling soil,

till we turn
to dust.

 

Put on your gloves,

and pull my weeds out
with your gentle touch
I’ll use my seed to grow a song
to save the world
Or at least make you stay mine.
My green thumb,

I dare not think of
what I would become
Without your love to guide me

through the mud and rain
You’re a pretty, pretty sight.

A compliment that fits just right
What are you doing
for the rest of your life?

My green thumb
