I was that little girl who would water dead flowers to try to bring them back to life
Who grew into a woman who would love and give too much.
Even now, I am sad when fresh flowers, vibrant and beautiful, die.
I think that was how you left me in the end. Unwatered and clinging to life.
We were each other’s favourite thing
It was more than a lover’s fling
You held me close and stroked my hair
We were such a perfect pair
Although no labels
We were true
There could never be another you
I loved I loved
You tried and tried
The day came for us to say goodbye
You wiped my tears away and sighed
I’ll see you soon
Just please don’t cry
I dare not say it
I just closed my eyes
I’ll love you till’ the day I die
