As I Grew Up

As I grew up with the magnificent leaves of one special flower
I began to realize what life is really about
I saw the beauty of her smile
while she was hugging me, holding me
She made me feel like nothing bad could happen again in the world
She held me close, full of love
and when I cried, her heart grew
Gently swaying in the breeze
Gently swaying with me
