Bed of Roses

The sunshine told the flowers
That you're not here anymore
Their petals just don't seem to smile
Quite like they did before

Your name is whispered in the wind
Each time I feel the breeze
The willows miss you since you left
And all of the other trees

The birds won't sing their happy songs
Like they did when you were here
The rainbows come to look for you
But then they disappear

You always took care of the flowers
Now the flowers take care of you
You fill them with your presence
The way that you used to do

In a beautiful bed of roses
Is where the angels let you sleep
But you're the most beautiful flower
That the roses will ever keep

    I love this! the solemn tone, the sadness. I can't even pick a favorite line because they're all so beautiful :)

    Lovely words Larry. When someone you love dies, it doesn't get better with time, as folk tell you. It actually gets worse, but I tell myself to think of the living and do something good for someone who also may be very sad in life. Tell yourself that you are far from alone with your sadness. A really well put poem I would say.
