The Sunflower
by unice5656

Small, dormant life
Calm within my shell
Alive, but not alive
Planted in darkness, waiting.

Then I felt warmth
Beckoning me up,
Up, up to the surface
It was you, life-giving Sun

You made me grow
Life, warmth, energy
From seed grew stem, roots, leaves
A whole, a bright Sunflower

From dawn ‘til dusk
You shine, you glow, and
You dance across the sky
I turn my head to watch you

You don’t notice
My gaze, my awe, my
Worship of your beauty
You just dance, carefree, smiling

When rain and clouds
Separate us, I
Am lonely, but you don’t
Miss me, high up in the sky

I am not the
Only one by far
Entire fields bask in
Your warmth, love and adore you

Whereas you are
Unique and precious,
Irreplaceable, I
Am just one of so many

Now I wonder:
If I disappeared,
Would you miss me? I hope
You would, just a little bit

But then again
I wish you only
Happiness. If you’d feel
Sadness, I would never leave

Regrets, I have
None. That I have basked
In your bright radiance
Is worth any suffering

You are the Sun
I, a Sunflower
Without you, I will die
Without me, you still burn on

But I hope that
You appreciate
This gift: the simple love
Of a humble Sunflower

    If Prince had to end up with either Gui or Wicked, I think I would support Wicked, even if Gui is one of my favorite characters. (Although I’d really prefer it if she didn’t end up with anyone!)

    Thank you for writing this poem.
