Falling Petals (poem)

Petals are falling
From the sky
Slowly they glide
Before my eyes

I watch them dance
Along the breeze
How you would have loved
To see them fall with such ease

The cool wind, it whips
My hair around
As I watch the petals
Fall towards the ground

Tears slide slowly
Down my cheek
As the petals land softly
Around my feet

They cover the ground
With their whites and their reds
A single petal
For each tear shed

So lovely - These petals
That I wish you could see
But alas, you cannot
For your buried beneath
