Tending the Garden

Forgive me, Lord, I snipped your Roses cut them all way down,

I know you've asked of me to tend your garden, but surely is this the way,

I pruned your trees and shrubs cut them quite a bit so they could grow anew,

I cut back the plants so next season they can come back even better,

I raked up all the leaves: cleaned out all debris and trash from off the ground,

I have worked to make it shine as if it were only mine,

I hope it's to your liking all this tending and fussing,

I appreciate a lil rain when it's needed and plenty of sun to keep up this fun,

Forgive me, Lord, I have been working in your garden!
