The essential home remedy was sitting in the garden
As she sat in the chair waiting for her amor
He was the doctor who wrote prescriptions, and
She knew every plant and flower with healing power.
She tended her home garden every day,
While he always walked away
Busy with work from morning to night,
She took her time at home for those who needed her
While he saved the nation with his mind.
She could perfectly arrange flowers and food
At a moments notice which happened always
As he invited everyone to their dinner table
His patients brought what they could of groceries
As a way to pay for his work, she turned it all to be used
Their family grew and grew, as well as their relationship.
She waited for him to arrive home to treat her
The flowers were there telling her to start
She moved from her seat to set water to boil
She added the flowers until it turned pink
She added a bit of her limes in season
She added the honey that was distant
She returned to her garden chair with a cup of tea
While she waited for his return, she knew:
Yo fui arquitecto de mi propio destino.
