You Grow Prettier Every Day

You Grow Prettier Everyday


Some bloom in the spring of their life

A pretty flower that everyone wants to admire

But they fade fast

Petals sagging  to later fall to the ground

Then there are trees

Who start as small green saplings, trampled underfoot

But the ones that search for the sun will grow with time

Getting stronger everyday

The flowers everyone once loved will be forgotten

For the shade and comfort the trees offer

Do not cry little sapling

Because you do not provide a fragrance

Your beauty will grow throughout your life

Instead of burning out in time
