Flowers in a glass vase,

Sitting on my desk

I bought them fresh,


Those flowers

give me smiles

They bring my heart from aching

to happiness,

In a flash

If only a flower could live

As long as I needed that beauty,

Just one more day.

Maybe one more minute would help

This morning

I woke to wilted blooms

And even then

I smiled

At a life well lived

My heart went from aching

to thank you,

In a flash

    How beautiful, Jennifer. It made me happy just to read it. Now, I need to get some fresh flowers for myself and think of you and smile.
