I'm a Little Flower

I’m a little flower
Being seared by the sun
My petals are now wilting
My life is almost done

I’m a little flower
My colors are fading fast
I’m parched to the core
And yet you move on passed

You water other flowers
Little sprinkles you give me
While I struggle to hold on
My beauty for you to see

I’m a little flower
That you once called divine
Now you have lost interest
I’m no longer glorious...fine

I’m a little flower
You’ve neglected for a while
But I’m still struggling on
Longing to see your smile…

I’m a little flower
This is my final plea
Remember my first bloom
Promise to revive me

Oh, water me, my love
My petals do caress
I’ll open as before
Show'ring you with tenderness

    Eileen, you won't find it unless you google Adam Wade/For the want of your love--can hear it on youtube--like I said goes back 45 years--he has a great voice and a very smart guy who actually worked with Dr Jonas Salk--the inventor of the polio vaccine.

    There's an old song-- For the want of a little rain/A lovely rose is lost/For the want of a tender kiss two hearts will pay the cost/So until you bring back the thrill I dreaming of/Like a rose without rain I know I'll live in vain for the want of your love.---This you say so well here. BTW--the Grook poem (escalator)

    Lucky one! Wonderfully written with deep feelings craving to be reciprocated. You may be a little flower, dear Eileen, but do not forget that little flowers are beautifying the world!
