I will plant daffodils here if you want.

I will plant daffodils here if you want.

A Poem by Relic

Image result for daffodils at a grave


 I will plant daffodils here like you wanted.
And when they've grown from the ground
and blossomed with life; 
when sunlight from God feeds them 
with warmth from a penny-colored sun,
I'll see them exist,
cheerful in yellow smiles and stiff collars.

But I will feel no delight 
nor contentment.
Nor will I happily float away as fulfilled 
as a hummingbird or bee.

I'll plod away instead, 
never expecting messages from the dead,
while holding a perpetual resentment at God
for keeping resurrection to himself.

You worded this so f*****g perfectly. I've resented who ever is upstairs many times for this. So much work goes in to a soul, only for it to be ripped away and kept in hiding.

Thanks for sharing.
So sadly beautiful or the words and visual you’ve shared here Relic. Placading ones last wishes should leave us filled with satisfaction but yet its human nature to resent the fact that God had been resurrected but our loved ones are forever gone. This is a sad, well worded poem you have shared here. Peace be with you Relic. Angelheart

Thank you for reading the poem. I appreciate it.
Oww ... but yeah, you make a good point. Christ got resurrected and ... no-one else ? It's a priority party. Clearly a case of the Star-Bellied Sneeches !

Sure sounds like it. But - who knows ? Christ got reincarnated. Maybe I'll have the good fortune to be reincarnated as a raincloud - and to relieve myself upon whomever I choose. :)

"I'll trudge away instead,
never expecting messages from the dead.
And a perpetual resentment at God

for keeping resurrection to himself."

These last four lines are my favorite, completely relatable. You have an excellent way of drawing the raw emotion from your lines. I enjoyed this immensely!

"What a day of rejoicing that will be"
Promises told, made to believe
Someone said we shall meet again..
How long can one wait for sweet by and by..?

This touches deep ... causes a soul to pause..

One of your best...

This is incredibly poignant. I read the first stanza, and believed I would be reading a lovely poem about nature's beauty. I was feeling your pain in the final stanza. So beautiful.
