handle with care

one day i’ll find someone 
who’ll stay a while and watch me grow 
water me at times
move me into sunlight 
when it’s been a hard day 
who’ll pick my fruits when they’re ripe 
cut them up into small pieces 
help me enjoy the sweetness 
before it all rots 
one day someone will find me 
let me refill their watering can 
sing about my love for them 
about our love for each other 
soak in what the earth has given to us 
what the earth has gifted to us 
what the earth has blessed us with 
enjoy life together 
as two living things 
made from above
