You once brought me flowers~
How my heart leapt with joy~
My soul sang for only you~
For you had filled that void~

There was a time I smelled those flowers~
Their scent was oh so sweet~
Your gifts to me were cherished jewels~
I thought I was complete~

Now those flowers have withered and browned~
No longer a beautiful view~
Your love for me has changed it seems~
We take on a different hue~

As Spring comes rolling in~
I will plant a garden anew~
No longer will I wait for love~
To myself I will be true~

And therefore is wing'd Cupid painted blind." The Bard

Mariee~
May your garden bloom anew
with flowers colored every hue.
When you garden with a song
love cannot keep away for long.

Beautifully painted pain ...
with affirmation in the closing.
Nicely done, Mariee.

I've hung my jesters' hat~
No longer a fool to play~
I'll tend to my garden and my heart~
Hoping love will come my way~

Thank you Hoot_owl and Cheryl~
And thank you Marge~
Your words were very kind~

Marie~

Sometimes it's hard to distinguish between flowers and weeds....but you seem like a smart gardener to me  . Good writing.

Wow~
Balladeer you read my poem~
I feel honored~
Yes it is hard to distinguish the weeds from the flowers at times~
I'm learning as I go~  
Thank you~
Marie~
