Petals Of Our Life - Poem by Bradley Flowers

One could say:
There are petals for every flower
A record of moments
Every so many years

Then a petal falls
Childhood play games
Your first best friend
Your first mistakes

Then a petal falls
The love in your life
The ring bringing trust
To a new found bond

Then a petal falls
To watch new steps
Learn love again
To guide and overcome
Children growing up

Then a petal falls
The first realization
Everything cycled complete

Then the petals continue
And one could say
Flowers forget
the petals are always beautiful

    I like how you use the a petal for each stage in life, in stead of he loves me he loves me not, well thought out, and nicely done.

    Yes my last name is Flowers, thank you very much, it's been such a long time since i'd been on here and I need to update and rewrite some poems and continue the progression of poetry with them. I feel Poems are sometimes meant to age like that of youth. So as you get older, well the words sometimes become clearer over the years. Poems mature the way we do. (Report) Reply

    Is your name really Bradley Flowers? I know a family with the last name Fowers. The family name used to be Flowers, but a couple of hundred years ago one of their ancestors got the 'L' beat out of him!

    And may this poem,
    With all the petals of a lovely flower –
    keep each one.
    And may it be an inspiration to countless
    For ages to come.

    A beautiful and in-depth poem.10
