In A Little Room
by Richard J. Budig 1996


I keep the flowers you gave me
In a little room in my heart.
Sometimes, you come in
And ask me to dance.
We move and turn and glide
In the golden glow of candles
That I place there every night.
Sometimes, when you don't come,
I light the candles
And hold the flowers
And dream of you.
And when dawn's first light
Breaks over my sill,
I'm there, waiting for you, still.

Richard, this a poignant piece. I'm sure there are many in the small rooms that have no flowers to hold until someone returns to them. Beautiful.

Well Richard, I like the poem but I swear the first four lines were a line in the movie Young Guns.

Michael:
You may be right. Like a lot of writers, I often have a poem "triggered" by something I hear or see or read. I used to worry about that, but over time, I have discovered that almost always, the trigger is just that, a trigger. I'm not familiar with the movie you're talking about. Thanks for the comment.
