Daisy Chains

We make daisies into a chain.
Giggling, laughing, it starts to rain.
We lift our faces to the sky
and soon we're drenched, you and I.

I close my eyes for a moment , brief.
Opening them I'm consumed with grief.
My heart is pounding in the dark night.
Gone is my child, the meadow, the light.

Only in dreams do you come to me.
In morning light my tears run free.
I long for sleep to see you again.
Only my dreams bring relief from pain.

    I see what Debbie meant, it does want to be a sonnet. You have a good turning point (volta) and an alternate viewpoint from the start. Much better than most of my attempts.

    wow, I wrote a sonnet one time about daisy chains and losing an old friend to death. I often see you on my own wave length. Marvelous poem.

    Ah! A beautiful verse, even in its sadness. May the good memories bring you a special kind of peace some day as you recall those joyful, sweet memories you write about here. Peace and love! Cynthia
