I picked carnations for you~

To show my love~

When your chair is vacant~

They fill the space with memories~

To make me feel complete and~

Not latent when life is tuff.

I picked carnations for you~

For they last a long time~

When the room is empty~

They fill the air with a fragrance~

That reminds me of our cherished times.

I picked carnations for you~

For they endure much~

With strong petals~

They help me to be stalwart~

To go on without you not lying dormant.

I picked carnations for you~

As they can become colors of rainbows~

With their help I can tolerate with resilience~

Life’s many poisoned arrows.

I picked carnations for you~

Back than to keep you well~

Alas they are still in the vase~

As you are gone~

Yet still you are utmost on my mind~

I have wrapped now the bouquet in lace~

To keep like you~

Them for all time.

I picked carnations for you~

To remind me of your presence~

I picked them with tears in my eyes~

For the consoling robust of these flowers~

Give my very being an on going power~

To ease the pain of missing you~

Other wise in life I would be devoured.

I pick carnations for you~

To show my undying love~

I pick carnations everyday for you~

To prove in my mind~

You are still there~


We are still one.

      Carnations are lovely flowers. The photos you selected to go with this sweet poem are also very nice.

      Hi Lisa: What a beautiful flow of expression. Carnations do carry the connotation and symbolize loss. The splendor in the bouquet is ointment that quiets these emotions to think only about the one(s) you miss. Voted up, this is a great tribute of how to cope with the pain of losing someone you love. The pictures are exquisite as too and tell your story very well.
