Expect to have hope rekindled,expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways! The dry seasons in life do not last,the spring rains will come again.

I look back into my memories,
like a stroll in to the backyard garden,
memories of both bad and good ,
like weeds and like lilies,
treasuring the good from the bad.
Memories of warm togetherness and missing aways,
like the grass,
that withers away as you laze to dwell in its beauty.The moments that didn't count but turned to be unique,
like the moth in the garden that turned to be a butterfly!

Everyday is a new chance and a blessing,
like the sun shines its grace anew every dawn,

every past is a memory cherishable,
like the soil that losses it fertility , that never returns.
through the past to the present
and so to the future,
its you,Dear God, that makes everything beautiful and cherishable.

i penned this poem based on how i feel about my memories from childhood and how every past will be just sweet.

There's "awesomeness" to this poem.  Love this sentence saying that the soil loses its fertility and never gets it back.  Amazing.  Simple and meaningful. =]" also, it would be great if you can check out my poem.

I like how you compare nature with simple aspects of life. It is very good, keep writing!

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

A very warm poem, reminds me of my summer days as well!

I love how I could imagine a garden! It was so beautifu and sweet! Nice Job!
