Winter Weeds

Tags: love
In the Autumn of the past year, 
Laying down between laurels,
You went home to whiter cotton,
Leaving me in sorrows of tears
And winter weeds in the rock garden.

Like an angel you sang me in sleep,
Songs of love we use to dance to,
Whispering your sweet halos 
And brushing back your red hair,
With stones of blue, in your coronet. 

Wiles of the devil played ruse on me,
Taking you down your weakening path,
Inspiring me to be a better person
As if a spirit in the closet,
I wear your soul next to my heart. 

Gently, I seek your heavenly awakening,
As we approach the nearness of springtime,
With smile and kisses in a locket,
Skipping and tarrying in your laughter 
And winter weeds in the rock garden.
