A Bouquet of Flowers

If you picked a flower for every care
in your mind –
How many different flowers do you think
that you could find?
If you put them all together
and made a huge bouquet
Wouldn’t it give your heart a rest
to give them all away?
But who would want these flowers,
that represent pains and grief?
I came to bear your burdens, Child –
Will you give your bouquet to Me?
