Late Bloomer

Late Bloomer

Better to be a late bloomer
Than to have never bloomed at all
Never to have felt God's love
Tragic spiritual stall
God's greenhouse blooms spiritual self
Into righteous souls of His love
Many children are late bloomers
God will grow them perfectly
Souls blossom at His touch
Blooming gifts He sends
There's nothing better
Than gifts from God
Outlasting everything
Making roses from twigs of briers
Pruning the bloom better, better
Until it reaches Him
