Lily For Heartache

May 13, 2011
By , Springfield, PA
Sunrise, Sunset
Love Dies
Love Frets
Holding hands at dusk
Rolling in sheets
breathe in his musk
A lily a day
keeps the heartache away
Tears well up and fall
Laughter bursts and dies
Rage comes and goes
Joy lasts a little while longer
than necessary
all in good faith
all for good show
Mother says to save your tears
for something worthwhile
He'll capture her heart
using words to beguile
She'll pass on her soul
tattered from years
A life of love
romance and tears
He'll wake one morning
to find her asleep
but not breathing
Her tombstone placed in May
he'll place a lily
To keep the heartache away
