Only In Death

Thu, 12/12/2019 - 05:08 -- dorankc

she comes in winter lapses

with her golden hair in waves

she comes with wilting flowers

singing on of summer raves


he waits in summer months

for his love to return

he waits with a cold and heavy heart

because it only burns for her


her mother comes calling

when spring season creeps back in

and she leaves with a gentle kiss

as he waits for her again


their love is short lived

because while the wind has a warm breath

he knows their love has no life

because she only comes in death
