The Gardener

You water me 
that I may grow
lush and luxurious
 
you prune me
when my branches stray
too far out or too high
 
you mulch me when
you think I may
wilt or die
 
you nurture me as if
I’m too frail to stand
on my own
 
as if without you
I may fail to thrive
 
in truth, maybe it is you
who needs me,
to survive.
