Petals of Death

With each year gone.
You place another rose upon the earth just for me.
You hold the pictures almost forgotten a little tighter.
The love is everlasting.
'Till it hurts and there's only more.
A wish upon a wish in the center of loneliness-
Tragedies abyss.
You look at yourself and ask 'why didn't I save her? '
And the only answer: 'because I couldn't when it mattered the most.'
A creation of the eternal sadness of a ghost.
It will haunt you forever.
But still the memories break through and bring a smile upon your face if only for a moment.
Don't worry my love you think to yourself, 'I will be their soon.'
Catching up in things immortal;
A human beings life seeming so slow
Yet when you reach the end you will wonder where it all went.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
