Are you a tulip blowing in the wind?
Standing tall beside your friends.
Supporting others as they grow,
often times thinking they have no place to go.
Close together, roots planted deep,
sleeping side by side under the stars, counting sheep.
Telling tails underneath the moonlight,
singing songs of friendships delight.
Sharing in life and all its colors together they often say,
“birds of a feather”……
For in this garden of life I’ll be –
next to my tulips friends and me,
growing until there’s life no more,
hoping at another chance next Spring,
to dance another dance and sing………
My Tulip Friends & Me!!!
