In the Rose Patch

There's a lone girl sitting
By my favorite rose. Hearing
Her sob, my mind's made up.
I land on her hand. 

Fluttering my blue and black 
Wings, I try to catch her 
Attention, hoping it'll stop
The tears.

She smiles through her
Tears and lets me crawl
Up her arm. Settling,
Only for a second on her neck.

She laughs. And with
That beautiful laugh,
I fly away,
Watching her watch me.

I land on a rose, waiting 
For her to see me. She rises
And follows me as I flutter 
Through the flowers.

"Don't leave." Her 
Whisper stops me, "Please, 
Don't." I flutter my wings,
Once, twice.

"You're my only friend."
She puts her hand down,
and I glide to it. Landing,
I watch her.

My black and blue 
Wings brush against 
Her cheek as I start
To leave.

But, she smiles, knowing,
That next year, my 
kids will meet her.
Meet her here, in the rose patch.
