When I picked our little bear up
from nursery one day last week,
It was rather chilly for a spring day,
It was really rather bleak.
As the lady opened the gate to me
I could see my happy little bear,
She was grinning from ear to ear,
she just loves going there.
With a skip and a hop,
she came running up to me,
a bunch of homemade flowers in her hand,
“I made them for you Mummy!”.
My heart burst with pride,
I grinned from ear to ear,
“I made them by myself Mummy!”
I will always hold them dear.
These flowers are quite special,
they didn’t need a garden to grow,
or Mr Bloom’s compost,
there were no seedlings to sow.
No, these petals are paper thin,
pipecleaners are their stems.
They are guaranteed to grow,
they don’t have ‘ifs’ and ‘whens’.
They simply need lots of nurturing
and lots of talking to.
They just need love and cuddles
and they will love you too.
