Drifting With Daises (poem)

Updated on July 9, 2013

Drifting with daisies a paradise lost

Searching the heavens whose will had I crossed

But here in this mire my soul is now tossed

With dream to return no matter the cost


Drifting with daisies a paradise lost

I asked the flowers where did I go wrong

I lie to my tears the pain won’t last long

Grasping at answers to help keep me strong


A silence in the wind bode my destiny

Searching the heavens whose will had I crossed

To face tomorrows just flowers and me

The wind touched my heart to lost memory


Once there were children with daisies would stray

I thought the kisses forever would stay

But here in this mire my soul is now tossed

Confused by the cloud which took Joy away


Hopeless the echoes which ruled all around

If this is the life to which I am bound

I shouted as I tossed daisies on ground

With dream to return no matter the cost

      I had to check out your daisy poem from yesterday, Mhatter99. Oh how sad!! But beautiful in its own way, as it pays tribute to a lost love and pain. The video is very pretty...meloncoly. I'm impressed by your vivid expression of love and pain mixed up all in one. Very well done, my friend. Love it! Daisies have always been my favorite flower. : ) Writing helps bring out that which lies deep from within, catapulting it out into the stars and beyond, to fellow readers who share your thoughts and dreams, along with those things which go along with it. Voted it up and awesome!! Hope you have a good day!

      Drifting with the daisies is a powerful and fabulous poem it made me imagine, visualize and explore the afterlife when we finally face our maker whilst drifting with the daisies. Thanks for sharing this poem it delivered the goods.

      This really touches the heart and soul of it---so beautifully written.

      Thanks for my journey this early morning at 6:00 am with my first cup of Java, it was a lovely ride.

      Oh, Wow, Mh, this is superb here. Very intense and dramatic expressions here as to why . . . and I really love how you incorporated daisies. Especially being the daisy means "Loyal Love, Innocence, I'll Never Tell and Purity." So, I understand when all of that is lost and has not returned!

      I am not sure, but this may be my new favorite, although your one from last evening I just read is close. Well, I will say they are both tied as to my new two favorites : ) !!!

      Lovely music video.

      Voted up ++++ and sharing of course!

      Hugs and love, Faith Reaper
