Flowers that didn’t die

Flowers in full bloom,
Intoxicating with vapours of perfume.
Fragrance in the air.
Enveloped me like a teddy bear.
Beautiful flowers that die in a day.
With memories that refuse to go away.

The bright colours of life.
In youth when smiles were ripe.
Beautiful flowers draped in bright colours.
Died and ended in painful tears.
Flowers that died in a day.
Still memories etched, they stay.

When the reality of morning comes,
Life within these flowers goes.
How I wish I could store!
The freshness of their dew restore.
Flowers that died in a day.
Rambling in my mind in every way.

Blue and purple.
Colours so noble.
Orchids in full bloom.
Felt alive and immune.
To the pains of the world.
Within them, I lay swirled.

Some flowers, they never die.
Their fragrance lasts up until the nigh.
Etched in the weaves of memory.
When life was cushioned and carefree.
Bright flowers I still see.
Beauty all around me.

Some flowers don't die in a day.
Because their beauty never fades away.
Ingrained in the memories of sweetness.
Amidst rotting and confusing emptiness.
Tightly shut between the pages of my heart.
Even though the stems and petals fell apart.

These orchids, with me they stay.
I've made potpourri of what would've died in a day.
Rekindling embers of grace.
Through blue and purple dried-up lace.
Resuscitate these flowers that died.
Because to my heart, they were tied.

Flowers that died in a day.
Wandering in my mind, refusing to go away.
Some flowers only lose their colour and fade.
But, their beauty and fragrance continues  to wade.
Through the heart and mind.
They are there to remind.

Months and years and decades away.
Yet those flowers for which I prayed.
No prayer goes unanswered, they say.
Come back, my mesmerizing tall bouquet.
Those flowers didn't die that day.
For with me, they live forever this way.

  2. THE LORD THROUGH OTHERS SAYS THIS,–
    MY UNRIGHTEOUS USE OF YOU IS AMISS….
    MY SELFISH AIMS
    MY SIN REMAINS
    THEY SAY I MUST CEASE AND DESIST!

    I AM OF YOUR WORK AND YOU FOND,
    BUTO F MY QUESTIONS YOU NEVER RESPOND…
    IT MUST BE TRUE
    THAT I’VE MISS USED YOU,
    I WISH IT WEREN’T TRUE BUT I’VE NOTHING ELSE TO BASE IT UPON!
    (OTHER THAN THE CHARGES OF OTHERS AND MY CONSCIENCE)

    AND I WISH THE LORD WOULD RECONSIDER, DESPITE MY OBVIOUS FAULTS! I NEED A MIRACLE OF FORGIVENESS.

    ANYWAY, RUELHA MY SISTER IN CHRIST, UNLESS A MIRACLE HAPPENS, THIS IS “GOODBYE” YOU CAN HEAVE THAT SIGH OF RELIEF NOW! :D–JONATHAN (NO HEARTS, THIS TIME)

    THE LORD BLESS YOU GREATLY. RUE!
