Girl with Azalea, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Your new found love should be put in a pot.
Tend to its every need right from the start.
It is fragile, best to forget it not.
Let that pot be made of your very heart.

Love between the two be equally true,
Then it shall in no time fully blossom,
The graces of love to both will accrue.
Attend with great care shall never succumb.

Through the years there will be many a tear,
Will be real love that helps conquer fear,
And to make the sunny days reappear,
With the desire to remain ever near.

For heart to grow love is its basic food,
That tingle of long past was its prelude.

    I love the last two lines. The first blossom of love is just a prelude. With nurturing, patience and love it continues to mature and grow. Beautiful poem.
