If Only You Can See

by Alicia Luna

If only you can see
the enormous responsibility
you had in your hands.
 
If only you can see
that you are God's caretakers
for this big garden
 
If only you can see
the beauty of this garden
and the variety of its flowers
with different colors
and that each of these flowers
needs its own special care
 
If only you can see
that some of these flowers look alike
but they are not
 
If only you can see
the unique colors and
aroma that each one
of these flowers has
 
If only you can see
that the only thing
that they need is care
with your firm hand and love
that these flowers could
grow straight
 
If only you can see
inside of each one
of these beautiful flowers
you will see the purity of their souls
 
If only you can see
when the petals of one of these
beautiful flowers begin to wilt
is not for you to turn your eyes away
and wait for the next caretaker to
do your job
 
If only you can see
that the only thing that these
beautiful flowers
that God Give you
to take care of is
a firm hand and love
 
If only you can see
that what you have in your hands
is the future of tomorrow
 
If only you can see
If only you can see
That these
flowers are
your children...

Dedicated to all the mothers of the world!
