In the garden of a childhood

where this heart still resides –

sits a vision of tranquility

of all the summers we did confide


In dreaming of a future, a self

that would come to be –

Of the paths that would stand before us –

Of the great visons we both would see –


It was this garden of my future

that my fondest memories now find rest,

in our conversations and our planning

that would prepare me for life’s tests


I am forever grateful of your dear friendship,

and all the time listening that you did give,

to that young mind in a garden

dreaming of the life that she would live –
