Dandelion Bouquet

The little chubby hands held behind her back
a satisfied grin on her face
as she reveals her surprise for me

'I picked them for you, mommy'

Because it is just the briefest moment 
in our life
that we get a dandelion bouquet
from the most pure and loving heart

Because one day soon
the field of dandelion will make me tear up
to think of the time that has passed
only the fragment of my memory
the moment not to be returned

I will take a dandelion bouquet any day 
over a thousand roses
