for all the flowers that cannot say (tribute)

For all the flowers that do not know
what it is to not simply grow
but bloom and blossom each day and year
to bring a smile to someone near

For all the leaves that do not mend
from those eating bugs that come again
and leave holes behind
what once was whole
they don't turn around, they just leave your soul

For all the stems that just can't,
hold up the sparkle, or show the world
the way to overcome and persevere
while all around, things aren't so clear

And through all time,
though standing small,
they stand at least,
and learn to prove,
though cannot say
they were here,
and it made it through

just like me
and just like you
