“A Humble Offer Of Love”


Show Text

a garden full of flowers
is the gift he offers her.
no flashy sports cars,
no sprawling mansions,
no bank books in his name.

the only thing he can give her
is his tiny flower garden,
the product of callused hands,
soiled knees, and endless days
under the sun.

he doesn’t think
his offering will impress her,
for he knows
she is used to receiving
gifts fit for princesses and queens.

he bows his head humbly in greeting
and then presents a bouquet of roses
as he tells her
about his little garden
— the only possession he could claim.

little did he know
that the girl he thought
was a spoiled brat and a snob,
was also secretly in love
with his beautiful flower garden
and him.
