The Wrong Gardener

Be careful who you let tend to your garden

because one day they’ll pick your flower

you will plant yourself in them 

and you will become so deeply rooted

that when they leave you 

you cannot replant yourself anywhere else.

Roaming the streets of Italy. I admired these flowers up for sale so much until I later learned how damaging it can be to allow someone else to take care of you.

  1. It took me a very long time – and very many broken-hearted days – before I found someone I knew would never leave me. Now she remains here by my side, and I beside hers. We have planted seeds of life together. One day you, too, may tend such a garden.
