By the Lillies

2By the lilies I sit
late evening, alone
with cool air wafting
through the quiet of our home

by the lilies I sit
they are so graceful
so strong
from a bud, they burst like sunshine
and hold on for so long

by the lilies I sit
they have beauty
and such style
subtle colour, pale ombre’s
deep rich greens
perfects whites

by the lilies I sit
at a table
with unlit candles
the clock ticks
I hear it echo
a precise ongoing ramble

by the lilies I sit
in peace
with Gods creation
gentle fragrant company
flawless beauty
without imitation

by the lilies I sit
as their time like mine does pass
with each ticking moment
drawing closer to the last

And I wonder if these petals
will be clinging come the morn
how many will remain
how many will just fall….

knowing its just days and hours
till left with wilted stems
they’ll return to the earth
and somehow grow again

by the lilies I sit
thankful for sweet moments we were near
a brief silent friendship
that I somehow hold so dear

Goodnight, sweet blooms
until the sun, until the dawn
when we shall continue on our paths
for that which we were born
