The Forgotten Garden (poem)

Updated on July 30, 2015

His garden held such beauty all could see

His wife brought glory to the morning’s glow

His children danced with ladies where they’d grow

As flowers filled the air from every tree


A scene the man would never come to know

Of wife caressing daisies happily

And children playing daisies for her glee

Outside those windows lost so long ago


Perhaps a breeze recalls the reason why

The man found purpose peering through a shade


They all recall he didn’t even try

To see the world he made begin to fade


And as they sadly cry they’re taken by

Cascades of darkness where his eyes now wade

      Any "good-bye '' might be regarded as the last one.
