LIKE THE FLOWERS YOU GAVE
Like the flowers you gave~
You came with a bound~
You made my heart hopeful~
As my senses were to astound.
Pink and lavender~
The fresh petals remind me~
As your calls came~
I became more intended~
Sunshine you nicked name me~
But perfection I could not be.
Oh woe is the heart that looked forward to thee~
Confused I saw you were after the meeting~
Sweet, honest, and forthright I be~
But what good did it do to have you leave me.
Like the petals to your flowers~
One by one the calls will be dropped~
I at a loss as our friendship changes its trod.
Drop of a petal my heart yearns to thee~
Drop of another petal I must protect and flee~
Drop of a petal lonely I be~
Drops of petals until there lonely there is only me.
