A Poem by Juliespenhere

sweets in the lolly bag
we gathered after school
made our teeth
so holy
we ended up 
sitting on a dentist stool

sweets for the sweet
my boyfriends used to say
whisper sweet nothings in my ear
and then come and play

sweet perfume of rose so red
as it lay across the coffin there
in this cold bed you meekly lay
and my tears have never really washed away

sweet little dress
in it she could play
as a toddler so carefree
in the sandpit
till the light became dark
end of day

sweet meringue pie
or sweet chocolate pudding
tempt our little taste buds here
and put some cream on there

sweet  carefree life
we are so lucky
these memories of sweet
sweet sweet oh so very sweet
some children never do say or here

cherish that's all so sweet
cos in the blink of eye
we will watch all fade
as sweetness often turns to sour
and in those days
we will pray for sweet again
we may watch our mothers cry

I love the way you use the word "sweet" to illustrate a wide variety of ideas, all well-described with strong vivid word choices. Many of your sweet scenarios are familiar yet originally stated: "sweets for the sweet" . . . "sweet nothings" . . . "sweet carefree life" . . . & so many more delectable morsels here! *smile* Fondly, Margie

well it depends on how we look at life
a walk down an avenue on a sunday arvo could be sweet to me
childhood stuff I went through holidays etc sweet
food of course sweeet
though I'm pre diabetic now I cant eat sugar lol
sweet is as sweet as we make it
