Time goes by and yet we pray,
"Dear Lord don't take me today."
We know it passes and never ceases
And still we yell, "But I've got reasons! "
Today, you said I was the one
You felt my love and held me close
Told me I was who you needed most
This and that and then more too
Not one thing I can't do
Dishes, laundry, floors all mopped
Toilets, carpets, anywhere husband's flopped
Not sure what else I can do
To make you long for me as I long for you
Those That Bloom
Flowers know how to grow
where the sun neglects to show
Beauty never more so cursed
Than for a woman for which men thirst
Is this a poem
Or just a bitch?
A way to proclaim
Our certain stitch?
I wore a hint of purple lipstick today,
Not sure you noticed
As, you didn't say
Another sleepless night without you
Not sure what I'm supposed to do
Toss and turn throughout the night
Waiting for the morning light
