May they Always Bloom

My Petals of Remembrance

by artemis53

My love for you I liken to
the petals of a rose
with softness of their velvet growth
and scent that always flows

along a path through sun or shade
that's crafted from my smile
with softened steps on leaf-strewn ground
upon each dew-kissed mile

And though one always finds a thorn
within these luscious flowers
explosive hues of color abate
the greys throughout our hours.

For beauty comes in many forms
and life is but a chance
where one partakes of dark and light
while seeking just one dance

so let me be your vivid rose
that holds a hint of light
with perfume to enhance your days
and keep you through the night

Then as the time is growing nigh
you'll press me in your book
of sonnets or fond fairy tales
remembering the look

I offered you at sweetest times
whilst dreaming as we walked
and planned a future for ourselves
with laughter as we talked

each word a bloom that brought us hope
and fueled each furtive heart
two lives that blossomed bringing forth
a future not to part.

So just recall the gentle times
of petals fresh and bright
and my perfume surrounding you
as you slept through the night.

and ev'rytime I cross your mind
may you perceive a rose
and with that thought you'll always know
how much my love still grows.

Yes. Those are some of my roses and also my punctuation. I'm just musing ;)
