I picked some daffodils this morning
Not the bold and yellow kind ~
These were soft and small and creamy
And brought pleasure to my mind.

I placed them in a vase
And let my mind go wandering,
So many lovely, pleasant thoughts
As quietly I sat pondering.

These were planted just for me
And as the seasons roll,
They grow and blossom
And bring comfort to my soul.

I smell their heady perfume
As I view each petal small.
These flowers are so beautiful
I want to share them all.

Always I shall love them
And cherish every part
Of this precious living legacy
Planted with love from the heart.
