Buddha’s Garden

for Jill

Family will never forgive you for growing up
They’ll want to keep you in Buddha’s garden
A red blouse and a white skirt – eyes straining against the sun
You will always be the sweetheart – the cherub – the treasure
Enjoy this time – this frustrating cross you will have to bear
This is a time of protection – of shelter from the sad-eyed world
Family will never forgive you so take your time my better angel
