Petals in the Wind

She loves me, she loves me not
Drifting gone one by one
I pluck away my many thoughts
Heart strings play scarlet skyward loft

Are petals rose forever lost?
So gentle into minstral wind
Or a prisoner of love escaping off
Thus, once, twice, thrice again

How shall I ever know…?
The person that you are
Amid this whirlwind of to and fro
In continued passions from afar

Quell my heart from its bitter swell
And allow true assurances to begin
Appease the soft June petals fall
To turn around in wayward winds

Alas, upon their return, amends
To this man of yearning
Evermore than merely friends
To accent the wildflowers blooming
