Gardener of the Soul

Gardener of the Soul
By Don Ray Williams

She said “life is but a journey”
And each journey is unique
As we travel on this journey
Wondrous treasures we will meet.

What we make of our journey
Is only up to us
We can grow and gain and learn
Or die and turn to dust.

Like finding a quartz crystal
How beautiful it splits the light
But if it’s mishandled
It can cut us with its bite.

She said travel down this journey
And enjoy it all the way
We come this way but once my friend
So make this one time pay.

Learn from the goodness and the pain
These words to me, she told
She helps me learn, She helps me grow
She is a gardener of the soul.
