petals and fireflies

A Poem by marilyn 1225
"

poem says it

"

she wanted to write a sequel to her twenty  year old self   passionate  love story

 that she handed in and received an

a because it was real and a because she could write then...


but now    there can be no sequel

death took those lovers

one lies in the earth

the other  walks on the earth

plodding as if dead

though always trying to catch that firefly

which  is elusive yet sparkles in the night


she thinks of her twenty year old lover holding his daisy

and then she  goes to face book to see his kids  his wife and his grandchild,   all wrapped up in a CHRISTMAS card. without him...,

what would he think if he were twenty again  peering into his future.?


now sans eyes or body he knows not

but she,  on the other hand ,  knows his future

but can not tell him ... too late   too little and too much

This just touch the heart with great amount of sadness, this remained me with a poetess whom passed away last year but before that, she lost her Son and her husband, the love of her life, she suffered a lot before she passed away to him... in these days we should remember all our loved ones, and we must count our blessings... Thank You so much my friend, and again Warmest Happy Holidays✨✨✨

wow, this is intensely sad..."all wrapped up in a Christmas card without him"

i wonder if there is social media on the other side?
and if so what are they writing about us...the ones "plodding as if dead"---
