For Only A Moment

Did it have to last for only a moment,
our love withered before the flowers you sent,
white carnations, a pure love they meant,
a relationship so newfound and innocent.

Our love withered before the flowers you sent,
your early departure I could not prevent,
a relationship so newfound and innocent,
a memory lingers on like a sweet scent.

Your early departure I could not prevent,
white carnations, a pure love they meant,
a memory lingers on like a sweet scent,
did it have to last for only a moment.

A well written engrossing poem filled with sadness, dealing with questions of lost love, and devotion in a whirl wind of emotions. Emile.

Thank you so much, Sandra. I appreciate your nice comments... It is never easy when relationships end abruptly and you're left wondering why. I've been thinking and writing about that lately.

Thank you, Deborah... A few months ago, I was in a relationship that ended suddenly. I still don't understand why and that was my inspiration for this poem.

Thank you so much for faving this one, Jan! It was my first attempt at the pantoum form. Debbie Guzzi suggested that I give it a try. This form doesn't have to rhyme, but I saw others using it and decided to go that route.
