The Roses


From vibrant beauty that bestowed
fragrance and cheer,
the withered, brown petals fell
upon the note that proclaimed
the flowers a token of neverending love.
As the fragile, warped remains of the once glorious
were discarded among the day’s rubbish,
the tears chased hope
until the next bouquet arrived.
