Love Poetry: “Growth” by Gary R. Hess

Tree drawing

by Gary R. Hess

The trees never swayed until you smiled.
The grass never grew until you laughed.

And when the leaves began to fall
and dry upon the earth,
they absorbed into the soil.
Trees and grass began to grow,
and fresh leaves lived.

“Growth” is a poem written for Valentine’s Day during the year 2018. Time has come and gone so quickly, and everything changes. There’s not much which can be said about the poem. It speaks for itself.

Want to be romantic? Feel free to share this with your loved one. Write it on a card, print it out, or remember it and recite it during the perfect moment. Whatever you do, you can’t go wrong.
