I will plant daffodils here if you want.

A Poem by Relic

Image result for daffodils at a grave


 I'll plant these daffodils here by your grave.
And when they've grown 
and blossomed with life; 
when sunlight from a penny-colored sun
feeds them,
I'll see them exist,
cheerful in yellow smiles and stiff collars.

But I'll 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.

Bittersweet, this one. A conundrum...be happy with the birth of those heavenly flowers or sad at the death of a loved one...better to walk away instead. Beautifully told in simple words. Great writing!

It's my pleasure, always.
One of the best poems I've read lately. This is so nicely constructed to tell a complete story in a simple way, with so much feeling & honesty. I love the underlying resentment from the start, even tho the narrator is doing the right thing, etc. Then when you get to the real truth of the matter in the last 2 stanzas, I love the way it's not watered down at all. Gracefully stated but also blunt. I love the perfect reproach toward God, which is not offensive, but the way many of us feel sometimes (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

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. :)
