Autumn Roses

the chemistry saw us through the early morning mists
we stood steadfast against the whirling winds
the fervour-filled beauty in her deportment
the acme of maturity in her own department
what i felt i cannot compress into written words
how i feel i cannot put into rhyming verses
the serenity drove us to where we were
those were the happiest times we ever shared
suddenly, the evening candles flickered and went out!
dear Lord, grant me the intellect to understand the science of love
all that we promised we couldn't keep
how we parted i can't seem to find the answers, still
it crossed gorges and won several wars
this heartbreak seems to be a morden norm
