My petals are withering
I am becoming fatigued
Enthusiasm, which once ran through my veins just a few short years ago
Are now the Sahara desert

 

After 17 years with her
I feel as though it's time to move away
My once beautiful rosebud which was fresh and new
Awaiting to emerge into a fragrant flower has died

 

I sit here in the vase
Wilted
Hopeless
With my petals withering
