Sunflower

This poem was in my  journal from Girl's Camp in 2005! So fun to go back and look at journal entries from so long ago. I don't know who wrote this and couldn't find it anywhere, but it's perfect for those days you're unsure of yourself or feel like doubting your worth. Download the 8x10 pdf below the poem!

Sunflower
My dear young woman, there's a lesson to learn
From the queen of flowers- a status she's earned...
She follows the sun where he moves each day
With her cheerful face she echoes his rays
She knows that his love and warmth and light
Are vital to her beauty and height.
If she stands among sunflower friends, she knows
She's sheltered from harm when the fierce win blows
Patiently she draws all she can from the earth
To bloom where she's planted, for she knows her worth.
And there are just enough clouds in the sunflower's days
To send precious water between the sun's rays
The heavens are gracious, to her all is given 
The sun shines upon her valiant living
She's the queen among flowers, just doing her part
Lending food to the bees-and cheer to the heart.
You're a special young woman, an heir to a throne
Yes, storms sometimes come, but you won't stand alone
And I promise that if you just follow the Son
His warmth will comfort you, precious one.
Bloom where you're planted, with all of your heart
Heaven smiles upon women who just do their part
Stand tall like the sunflower and know your worth
You're a daughter of noble and royal birth.
