Today you helped in the garden

Today you helped in the garden

and as I watched I wished

that I could stop time,

to freeze it,

right then and there

As you looked on in wonder

I saw your smile,

your rosy cheeks,

your eyes alight

as you tended your garden,

swept the pavement,

and tore out plants with glee

As you played, I listened

Your laughter warmed my heart

the sweetest melody

And as you played,

my heart sung with you

and I felt your joy

Today you helped in the garden

and  my darling, you shone

brighter than the sun at noon.
