Burying True Love

The rose withers where you lie
Despite the watering tears I cry

I placed it there upon the place
You lay in peace and eternal grace

Embracing the piece of smooth cool stone
I placed a kiss there for you alone

The love I feel I can not hide
I long to see you on the other side

    Beautiful sad sentiment. Would be a wonderful tribute in a funeral program. If from true life, I wish you peace. And may God's love to you not cease.

    At first I thought you were writing about yourself. I was relieved to read the earlier comment. Very sensitive writing. Jack

    Thanks for taking time to read my poem and comment... a very sad time for anyone whether you know them or not. We all can feel somehow connected when we witness grief. Again thanks
