Red Roses (poem)

Red roses’ enchantment would mark the day

Just like that first kiss now dreams away

When summers in love always will stay

And rainbows we made cast colors to grey


For ours was the magic Joys would excite

As days without end would dance in our light

Our kisses was music scenting the night

A time for this couple was never so right


Kiss of the morning arose each new day

As couple together brought wonder to light

No darkness would mar our day or our night

Our purpose for being never saw grey


Then came the dawn a change would excite

Something familiar had faded away

Red roses and dreams which promised to stay

Now whispered of things no longer quite right


Those rainbow we made where turning to grey

And all that we had we wanted to stay

So for our memories we went away

Red roses’ enchantment would mark the day

Music only

As you deftly pointed out, not all endings are happy ones.

Some endings are unhappy, some leave us up in the air, and some are truly happy outcomes. I like the last one best! Interesting poem.

There will be sad endings alongside happy endings. That is just the way of the world. Beautiful poetry, Martin.

There is nothing more soul searching i life than a rose fading away.
