TEARS

Tears
Tear apart
Or
Heal.

Tears
Happy
Or
Sad.

Tears
Laugh
Or
Cry.

Tears
Well and run
Catch them
Before they fall.

ASHES OF ROSES

On their wedding day
He gave her
Red roses
After they wilted
She threw them
In the fire.

On their anniversary
He gave her
Yellow roses
After they wilted
She threw them
In the fire.

On her birthday
He gave her
Lavender roses
After they wilted
She threw them
In the fire.

At
Her
Funeral
He placed
Pink roses
On her door.

At
Her grave
He poured over her
All
The sifted
Ashes of roses.
