The Scent of Jasmine (poem)

A fine spring day when she arrived for me

The scent of jasmine caught me unaware

Of all the meaning that was waiting there

It took my soul to teach my eyes to see

-

The only words were those within her stare

Which whispered scents of what was yet to be

Of promises of dreams to set me free

To join the jasmine floating in the air

-

The years of questions I just let them pass

That she still cared is all I need to know

This thing called love I’ll never understand

-

And there as tears and jasmine did amass

She turned to me and said it’s time to go

And with a final kiss I took her hand

Music only
