Like a Flower in the Desert

 

LIKE A FLOWER IN THE DESERT


Like a Flower in the Desert

Like a flower in the desert
A child came unto me
 Adorned with lace, a tiny face
My heart was filled with glee.
 Lots of toys and teddy bears
 Were strung along the hall 
A cup of tea and make believe 
A world of baby dolls. 
Ribbons here and lipstick there
 Our little girl grew tall
 Times now spent with daughter
 Were growing very small.
 Nice young man with shiny car
 Takes her to the prom
 One day soon, a honeymoon
 No time left for mom.
 Her wedding day, a lovely dress
 With school days far behind
 A baby filled her idle days
 And brought new life to mine.
 Like a flower in the desert
 A grandchild came to me
 With tiny face, adorned with lace
 My heart is filled with glee.
