Come Sit With Me

Garden Bench, Mesa AZ

My dearest love be not dismayed

For the healing sun still rises and shines

As nature creates miracles each dawning day

Of clouds painted with hope on an azure canvas sky

Take a walk, feel the refreshing morning breeze

Stirring wisps of graying hair about your face

Pause to watch pollen laden honeybees

Soaring through air with beauty and grace

Come sit in the bountiful garden with me

On the ancient bench made with reclaimed wood

Raise your eyes to the lovely heavens and see

All the beauty and grace and good
