Outside

Standard

Sunday 25th March

.

Outside, enjoying the sunshine today

Digging and weeding in the garden

Preparing the ground for bedding plants

A cold Spring had made the soil harden

.

We only have quite a small space

But we like the colour the flowers bring

And pollen for the bees and butterflies

Listening to the songbirds sing

.

You never used to help us out

Staying inside to watch cartoons

But sometimes when it was sunny and bright

You’d pick flowers in the afternoons

.

Petal by petal you’d strip them off

Absorbed in this delicate task

Until only the bare stem remained

Why you did this, we’d always ask

.

Really wish you were back here with us

Taking pleasure in the fresh air

Smiling and laughing, so innocent

But all we have is an empty chair

.

Love you sweetie

Forever and always

You, amongst the flowers

Your brother, not looking too happy

Spring sunshine over the town this morning
