From Earthen Bed
Golden soft was the light that swiftly flew,
As whistling rain pelted majestic oaks
And the soaked birds began to cry for you
As Nature silently wrapped up its cloaks
Thirsty for coming dawn, so bold and new.
Silver Maples fluttering in the wind,
Where the fast sleeping rabbits hid away
All beautiful, we wish to never end
With brightened colors, every joyful day
As Nature's beauty flows out to transcend.
As sky greets the land like a golden thread,
I cry for my heart is truly Broken.
Muted memories from the day we wed.
The future was promised by words spoken.
Your pure soul taken from our earthen bed!
Bird like angels transport you to the sky.
Weeping willows now join in my sorrow.
Unable to give me an answer why.
Today is lost, I long for tomorrow.
There within the Heavens we will both fly!
