I came across this beautiful poem yesterday....
A Wild Orchid
by Lanie Alexandria Costeas
We are all flowers in the garden of the world.
Some of us are daisies, dainty and bright.
Some of us are poppies,with sweet contagious laughter.
If there was a flower for you,
You'd be a wild orchid,
So f'ull of life,colors alive,
Sprinkled with scarlet and purple,
Explosions of colors racing through your petals.
I was walking in a garden,
Looking for a flower with a soul like yours,
A free spirit,so intense and vivid.
There were many flowers,
The tulips were always telling me to stand up straight
and not open up too much.
The violets were deep but when watered with love closed up.
The rose was too perfect in every aspect.
Then there was you so unique and wild.
A orchid with a soul different from them all
different to touch,to hold,to look at.
You took my wild colorful side,and let it live.
Set me free with your fire
I dream of finding you again,
discovering you again,
There's far too many daisies in life.
