One Simple Wish

promise me
that when all is said and done
there will not have been
precious moments wasted
memories forgotten
or the sweetest roses passed–
such glories traded
for lesser things gained
in the rush
of keeping up
with life.

Mmm, I hear you so well in this... Love needs TLC just like anything worth having. Life is short enough as it is, so... Thanks for this.
Now this in its own way is a very nicely controlled, well paced poem. Koozer would like this one.
Lori. I hope he keeps up his end, he is a fool otherwise! ! !
A simple yet bountiful wish. May it come true for more of us.
A wonderful sentiment so sweetly put. I am glad I dropped in and read it. Regards, Lucy
