A New Tomorrow - Poem by Daleen Enslinstrydom
In the dew-fresh morning
the sun rises over the broken yesterdays
to bring a new tomorrow,
like the new life that you brought
when you entered my life
with love and flowers.
You transformed my house
into a tranquil place
where we both had to learn
to live again
we had to make a house a home.
The garden is something special,
a place where a weary soul can find tranquillity
and the iron board decoration
tells the longing of our lives:
“here we rust in peace”
like the tin buckets full of flowers
that has found a place in the sun
we did also find a place of rest.
You brought your heart with every new plant
that you offered to me
but initially you were driving me mad
but each and every plant found a place
in the garden and in buckets and pots
in the backyard.
Roses, lavender, succulents, geraniums,
gazanias, daisies, margrets, jasmine, daylilies
and all kinds of other flowers
started to decorate the garden
and even the back wall
and this morning when I did wake up at dawn
the garden called me
and with the weavers, sparrows and turtle-doves
I came to greet your handiwork
and my heart found a dwelling place
in my own bit of paradise
and with the sun reflecting on the tins
every little flowerpot oozed vibrant colour
into the new morning
and I want to thank you my love.
