A Tear Drop on a Rose

A Tear Drop on a Rose For here I stand amongst the garden Vines along the gated path Songs of never left forgotten Blooming in the aftermath Thus I find my heart is broken Soft the air of fragrance pure Lush within this fertile garden Beauty I shall see no more Silhouettes I long to beckon Wave as if they need me so Shadows formed on perfect hedges Happiness I used to know Winds of change now come to greet me Whispering their sad refrain To the sky, what is the meaning I shall never love again Lonely now my scented feelings Rooted in the dark abyss Memories now cast a calling Looking back on times to miss If by chance you walk this garden Here where every flower grows Find that I have left a message In a teardrop on a rose

Wow Chris, you better yourself with each write, so soulful and mournful, yet hopeful. Hopefully Victor reads this, I don't know what happened but noticed he's been quiet lately.
