Tears and roses

Let me show you her face
A smile above the grave

The leaves now
cover her skin
with their earthen
fingers and teeth

How soon It could be
The laughter and the shyness
it took away

I pass on
Every night and day
Words left missing
Nothing by my lips

I hate how I gave away
My tears on a sunny day

Heart would breathe again
I would tell it
You would live again

Dedicated to a special someone I lost today. May Her gentle soul rest in perfect peace.
