Within One Gardenia's Bloom



She sits in waiting under a radiant sun
amongst her garden of friends
she knows her love will someday come
as sure as the autumn wind
she needs no manicure lipstick nor pearls
she will wear no garment in red
she is truly a natural kind of girl
and she is already dressed to wed
she will not spritz a touch of perfume
to beckon her lovers call
for she keeps her own within her bloom
for God has taken care of it all.

...she keeps her own within her bloom... I like that. Reminds me of the natural smell which we all have, & which I think is what really attracts a partner 2 us or us 2 them.

I really like this one.

"Do not let your adornment be merely outward—arranging the hair, wearing gold, or putting on fine apparel—rather let it be the hidden person of the heart, with the incorruptible beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is very precious in the sight of God. 1Peter 3:3-4
