Today, I saw a beautiful violet
With its’ radiant purple petals
Lying atop a white glistening blanket of snow…
As it lay silently dying.
And the violet stared back at me
Like your own violet wide eyes
Looking sadly at me
Crying no tears.
Yet pleading with me
To come back and stay.
But alas, like the dying violet
So is our love we once had.
Our lives together a memory
Wilted like the purple petals of misery.
Silent like dreams that we awaken from,
Knowing our time together is over.
And like that violet
Frozen in the white cold snow,
So was once your warm heart
That grew cold.
Not wanting to move on,
Still controlling an imaginary love,
That will never find its way back home.
So as I linger over the still beautiful violet
Now dead atop the cold white snow
I for a moment let go
