Jade

Jade flowed from sullen eyes
Disdain from fiery hair
A soliloquy of anguish 
Captured by a snowy stare 

I found rose petals on her lips 
The remnants of a trusted man 
Who had forsaken the pleasure 
Of holding heaven’s only hand 

I had dreamt of her touch 
Kissing her angelic face 
Whispering those words 
Only eternity can embrace
 
I found her silent sorrow 
Trapped behind shivering eyes 
Offering her my shoulder 
When she was ready to cry
