flowers, so beautiful – then and now

photo-7flowers, so beautiful, then
someone not seen in awhile,
to hold down the aisle,
to invoke a great smile

someone’s very special day,
finding somehow, a way,
not knowing what to say

flowers, so beautiful, now
to place atop a grave,
down a path the color of wave,
lonely stones of no pave

the only gift you can receive,
read a letter, and sadly leave,
a flower’s beauty, now hard to conceive
