Flowers Grave

Someday the silver moon and I
Will go to Dreamland
I will close my eyes
And wake up there in Dreamland
Tell me who will put flowers
On a flower's grave
Who will say a prayer

Will I meet a China rose there
In Dreamland
Or does love lie bleeding
In Dreamland
Are these days forever and always

And if we are to die tonight
Is there a moonlight up ahead
And if we are to die tonight
Another rose will bloom

For a faded rose
Will I be the one that you save
I love when it showers
But no one puts flowers
On a flower's grave

As one rose blooms and another will die
It's always been that way
I remember the showers
But no one puts flowers
On a flower's grave

And if we are to die tonight
Is there a moonlight up ahead
I remember the showers
But no one puts flowers
On a flower's graveĀ

Awesome. Plenty of room for each reader's "imagination"

to put their own metaphors into your poem. I like that. That is pretty cool. And I enjoyed the rhythm as I read.

Now you're Juspoet!

Justom, beautiful poem, beautiful flowers. Oh, I want to be "let in on something" like Vern too.

Alright it's time to fess up, the photos are mine but the words are from a song by a guy I've loved for many years Mr. Tom Waits. So all credit to Tom, just not this one :-) Glad everyone enjoyed it though. (I did give him credit in the key words)
