Give Me Spring,Don't give me Fall

Do not  slip away.There are still tomorrows to follow
Still stories to tell,Photographs to be taken
More cakes to share,Candles to blow
Walks in the meadows, Strolls along Summer shores.

Hold on , Hold on , Be strong !

Helplessly I turn to God, I Pray to the one...
The one I hug and fight my battles with
The one I love , hate , love ,ignore and adore .
' Do not give me chrysanthemums, dear Lord
Nor bless my land with cypress trees
Do not let widow sparrows rest on mother's window sill
Nor let our spirits wear their silent wings.

Don't let me hear the sound of mourning bells
Give him life, and give  me joy
Give him hope, and give me laughter
Give us petals, velveteen petals that keep on blooming
Give me Spring ,Don' t give me Fall.'

    Very nice, I love it. I love the prayerfulness of this. A plea for a life and for happiness. There is a selfish overtone in this, one that I think we all have when we are about to lose someone dear and that makes it that much more real. I love this poem. I had to look up chrysanthemums, very pretty.

    A very emotive poem, a plea for life. One can only feel for you, since you are young and full of life.
