In My Garden

from by Arima Ederra



I made a hole and I put it in the ground
I’ve built my faith on it
I dig away as I pull myself backwards
I didn’t mean to be here
now I’m alone in this dark little garden
where have the plums gone?
they left a trace of little purple sweets and autumn
I’m waiting for the fall


now I’m here, here in my garden
now I’m here
waiting to sprout
I’m waiting to sprout
I’m waiting to sprout (sprout)

I’ve closed my hole but the seeds are on my back
I haven’t grown a bit
I’m waiting for the sun to come outside and play with me

I am ready, (now I’m here)
I’ve been ready to sprout (here, in my garden)
I am ready (now I’m here)
I’ve been waiting to sprout (waiting to sprout)

I sit alone in my itty bitty garden
I’ve waited just to be
I’m waiting for the sun to grow a little better
come outside and water me
water me
water me
water me

I sit alone in my itty bitty garden
in my garden
come and sit in my garden
my garden

I’m in the garden
find me in the garden
I don’t know why I’m in the garden
