Two Beautiful Flowers Poem by duncan wyllie

Two Beautiful Flowers

Rating: 5.0

I saw you yesterday with that brave smile on your face, and it cut
I tried to look your way with a reassuring smile, but still it cut into me
Both of us now, you with the tears fought back, me with a heart that could so easily crack, as I saw you yesterday with that brave look upon your face

I shall miss you, in ways that I may never find easy to say
And I will cry from a very deep part of me inside
But like the phoenix, though mythical in story
In truth, a simile, I cannot hide

For in your smile my darling, I see something that is born of hope
Something had to die in-order for something to be fixed that was too easily

But sometimes just as winter has taught me of it's cold
, I shall try hard to numb the feelings that take such a strong hold

I will shake them off with laughter and tears and shout to the heavens.
'Please Lord Keep them well and stand, their side
These two beautiful Angels

This poem can be interpreted in so many ways - smiles and similes and the like. Whether your flowers are flowers or metaphors for broken relationships, the emotional underpinning is constant. Beauty and regret shared with optimism. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Strange how a simile can become a smile, when you look at it with just one 'i'? A lovely piece Duncan. Danny
