Dead Amaryllis ~ Photo by Patrice

A flower wilts
A flower dies
Its life with us
Has said goodbye.

No more joy to bring
Like it once did
All dead, gone
Done with it.

A flower dies
That had a life
Giving beauty, joy
In such a lovely life.

Now is gone but in out mind
We still see
A flower that once
Breathed eternal beauty.
