Today I Thought Of You


I thought of you today,
That is nothing new,
But I cannot tell you.
***
You were always there,
And I never knew,
How much I’d miss you.
***
So in the words you loved,
Life’s a piece of shit,
When you look at it.
***
Without you here,
I’ll live by your ways,
And enjoy my life.

Another Petal Falls


A rosebush is like a family.
Each home is a rose.
The petals the people.
***
Just as people pass.
The petals fall.
Eventually the rose is bare.
***
A home may close.
The flower may wither.
But the rosebush keeps growing.
***
Each petal is remembered.
Every rose is not forgot.
The rosebush is not lost.
***
So remember each petal.
And don’t forget each rose.
Watch as the rosebush grows.
