Wilted Flowers

He is the rose

I am the daisy

We bloom together

Side by side

         

And we were happy

Forever and ever

Until he wilted

Wilted and died

               

We talked for hours

Basking in the sunlight

I remember his sorrow

The pain as he cried

           

But he was my angel

My trusted, beloved

Until he just wilted

Wilted and died

          

Years later, alone

Although he is gone

The longing is here

An aching deep inside

        

I thought that forever

We could be togther

Until he just wilted

Wilted and died

The End
