Roses To Remember - Poem by Chris Boyles

Think this one speaks for itself really..

There she was her life all but done
sad memories that recalled only one.
The one who was a glimpse in time
one portrayed many times in rhyme.

A heart many dearly wanted to win
one that not many could see within.
A soul haunted needing to be found
one seeking answers to life abound.

Wondering of their life she now lay
upon her still lonely bed on this day.
Had she tried to hard to keep hold
or not hard enough for one so bold.

Gifts bestowed she wondered why
breathlessly she began now to sigh.
Her heart he took her soul she gave
never to meet only beyond the grave.

Behind closed doors hidden was she
like a freak he didnt want any to see.
A poem unwritten they were to write
two souls united of a lady and knight.

One last wish she would like granted
in her memory two roses be planted.
A red representing her body and soul
a white for her love so true and whole.

Few would know of her passing away
as the tears flowed on her bed she lay.
Thoughts now of when she was gone
as playing on that day was their song.

Dreams shared and words once said
no longer heartache or tears be shed.
The one no more would she miss so
knowing soon she would have to go.

Words written by her simply penned
'I love you even beyond my lifes end'
Closing her eyes death showed its face
peace to find now in that special place.
