    (wiping the tears)
    many years ago, a seed
    was planted, fed, nurtured,
    loved and prepared for
    its entry into this world;

    this seed was released
    and still loved, nurtured,
    fed and prepared for its
    journey through this world;

    a season came when this seed,
    still loved, nurtured, prepared
    and fed was removed from the one
    whom planted it in this world;

    four seasons later, this seed,
    unfed, unloved, unnurtured,
    unprepared for this world
    searched for the planter;

    the one whom PLANTED the seed
    still loved, wanted to nurture,
    wished to feed, ready to prepare
    its seed for this world;

    today, the one who planted
    the seed saw the seed he fed,
    nurtured, loved, prepared for
    the world only to hear her say,
    "Daddy, i still love you..."

    Blessed is He
    who tends the fields
    making sure the unfed, unloved, unnurtured and unprepared
    make their way
    to the planter

    Blessed is He....

    I can feel the emotion in my spirit

    but right now Ijust can't express them in words...
    I need to re~read, and let it marinate in my mind, my heart and soul and pray that I'm given the proper words to reply:)
