cruelly in the garden

This Abundant Garden

Carelessly neglected and cruelly rejected  
choked by the weeds brambles and briers
sentenced to solitude ever trapped within
her faithless lover’s long forgotten garden
while wandering to ease my restless soul  
I came upon this rarest and fairest flower 
and in her sorrow thought I saw her smile
transfixed and bewitched I took her home
now we’re flowers flourishing sharing love
in this abundant garden we call our own
