6 Yellow Roses

Carole Bilotta Clark

Many decades ago
I met a guy I wanted you to know
He sent me these Roses on Valentine's day
They were like the fresh air by the ocean bay
No note no condition just a word of admiraion
He was like the distant sky beyond the sea
Never could touch him, his spirit was vibrant and free
Simple and fun things he shared
He showed me that he cared
He believed in me with all his heart
He was like a kid always playing with dirt
No one had ever made me feel so good
Made me laugh when I was in bad mood
Yes, he told me I can do any thing and succeed
He planted in me the dream seed
His 6 yellow roses are still with me
They are dried but as pretty as they could be
Now I have all the worldly goods around me
But he is gone with the wind not here to see
