Petals for my Lady.  

I gathered up the petals of
the sweetest garden rose
Laid them 'round my Lady
while she was in repose.

And as she slept, their perfume
scented her tender dreams
Some nights I would dance with her
beneath the pale moonbeams.

Seems like a century ago
when our season was still young
Our souls entwined forever
and our song was yet unsung.

My Lady cold, now slumbers
again I seek the rose
Surrounding her with petals as
she lies in deaths repose.

Romantic and warm but also very sad. In a strange way this piece reminds me of what the seven dwarves did/may have done after Snow white had died. This is full of love and respectful memories of some one who clearly meant a lot to you. A nice tribute to them in my opinion. Thanks for sharing

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your lovely thoughts on this one. Cheers!

I think you are in touch with your inner Poe. This one has the spirit of Annabel Lee written all over it. Well done.

Appreciate you stopping by and leaving your kind thoughts on this one. Thank you. Cheers!
