Sweet Flowers (poem)

Sweet flowers rolling weeping on the ground

What hardened heart was formed to leave you there

Who else this night has shared the fate you bear

What wind of sorrow has a lover found


Such beauty as her heartbeat you did share

And with each kiss between two lovers drowned

Each whisper made you flutter mid the sound

Was it your scent which tipped passions to flare


What careless thought made bitter words ignite

What madness masked a lover’s will to see

What sadness cast you down when it was through


Sweet flowers weep no more for it’s alright

This night will pass into a memory

Until it does this heart will care for you

Guess who

Exquisite romantic poem---I loved it--- with a great video. And who is that Hunk with an Angel? Memories are divine to revisit and are sweetly cherished.
