A Single Flower

Once upon a day of darkness
With thunder so loud and rain so fierce
I came across one pretty flower
Standing strong in this harsh storm

It was ordinary; like any other
But something about it brought me to tears
Maybe it was the way it smiled
Despite the world beating down

But the small flower so gentle and kind
Seeing me weep called me close
As I leaned in to my tiny light of hope
She whispered to me
It’s okay, there’s no need to cry
