For Julia

Little rose, did you know
that god grows as you grow
and love holds you in sunlight
and shelters you, close
as a heart to a soul.

Little rose, listen close,
for god already knows
when you'll bloom, and your colors
bright, bold, or serene--
god has seen all your seasons
from darkness to dreams

and he planted your seed,
and he waters your roots,
and as you grow, little soul,
know that god grows in you.
