” With Cup In Hand “

As I strolled through Tessha’s Poetic Garden…
A single line from a song arose within my soul…

“ you don’t bring me flowers any more “

As my lips grew into a smile…
The pleasures that are you…
Danced within my heart…

I stopped and did that googlealabing thing…
I know it wasn’t our song…
It was mine…

As with you I didn’t always agree with your politics…
But I melted to her voice as I did yours…

“ and baby, I remember all the things you taught me “

“ I learned how to laugh, and I learned how to cry “

I have yet to allow them to flow…
For I choke and fight them back…
Together we raised a son, you will never know…

We still dance within the moonlight of my soul…
To the music within my heart…

“ so you’d think I could tell you goodbye “

But through sixty plus years…
I have searched through His Cosmos…

And you were the most beautiful wildflower…
I ever came across…

He is not yet grown and oneday
he will know and understand
how one wildflower
will forever grow
and dance within my soul…

And when my quest is done it will not be goodbye,
but good morning, when our hearts
and souls will embrace once again…
