NO PLACE FOR FLOWERS

It would be hard

delicate against rock

I knew going in

Thought I was tough

You too–

We smiled bravely-

didn’t we

Air hung heavy

left silent those

Grateful they weren’t chosen

for the challenges

we faced

Hard to endure

I’ve walked away

You know no cure

some aches and pains

Let us be vibrant

Anyway

The memory of

how we so bloomed

will not soon fade

We loved

fragile gentle

though we knew

We could not long live

There simply

where

they wouldn’t make

Room for flowers
