the ungrateful one

ungrateful, yes, that's me
for yesterday, roses you brought
and kissed my cheek
and all I think of is the day I will leave
your gift of roses means little if nothing to me.

the day before when I angered at your old ways
and wanted to fight, you declined,
and apologized in the name of peace
and I think you must do it on pupose,
devious to the end

you touch me here, and caress me there
and wait for me to come round
but the hate you planted yesterday
has a death grip on me.
my passion has in fled in fear.

it is not that I can't go on
it is not that I can't forgive
your control and your anger
suffocated my love
and now it is too late.

to reach for a bit of sunshine
I will be
labeled ungrateful, for all to see

Pretty harsh perspective. Hope you can work your way out to one day embrace a better life. Peace.

You will hear at least one voice
Applauding you, and your choice.
Roses can't buy back a soul.
Once love is dead, the ashes cold
You simply must take care of you.
Do what you know that you must do
And listen not to those who'd label -
They haven't supped from your table.
You deserve that sunshine ray!
Tomorrow's yours; Who care's what they say?

I ditto Suthern, ILoveit....

You can't go back to yesterday for that time has gone, you can't go to tomorrow because tomorrow never comes, what you can do is look to the future for that's where all tomorrow's begin..

That's another great spurt Foxy Granny ... and Auntie said it all (and much better than I would have).

Nicely written ....how does that saying go?
"Too much, too little, too late"
I can relate to that very much

But positive as sound."
