Roses

The petals on my roses
Now have withered and died
Just like the tears that streamed
When I finally cried
I nursed those flowers so long
But I knew they’d never last
Just as I nursed my wounds
You left when you passed
How deeply I loved those roses
But deeper still I loved you
The roses rich and red
But me I was feeling blue
We once laughed so happily
As we tended those roses every day
Why’d you have to end it all?
Why did you go away?
I suppose I’ll plant new flowers
But you I will never replace
And I will put a rose upon your grave
Wiping tears from my face.

Fantastic! You must get hold of me, my dear.

I'm glad you liked this...I wrote it when I was 15...quite some time ago (don't ask how long...we'll leave it as it is...) This was written for my aunt when she passed away, and I found it tonite, and decided I would post it.

This is very sad...but I enjoyed it.
