Such a tiny treasure 
Shall I try
To paint her portrait..
Gathered from the forest floor
With soft colors, a delicate brush
And swirls of imagination 
She shall have..
A dress of lovely lavender
Snowy white ruffles 
Tucked away just there
Gentle seams 
Repeating like heartbeats
Will it be a violet then
When I add myself to it
Would you have noticed before..
As she stood so quietly hidden..
Among the fallen leaves
Under barren trees
..carry her with you this day
Wherever you may go
And know
That I am
There too….
