I Nearly Brought You Flowers

The sun shone then

disappeared in the blink of an eye.

I turned my head for a moment, and,

it was gone. It felt wrong to miss it

as it said goodbye but

how could I have known it would leave so quickly?

Suddenly the sky was dark,

I missed the sun but the sun didn’t miss me.

Its warm lips kissed me in mystery;

the back of my neck holds the history

of all those lovely moments 

I looked away from –

scared to face them head on.

I watch my step, scared to tread on

what lays before me.

It looks, feels, smells,

like a bed of roses…

But I’m wise enough to know 

they hold thorns.
