Sighing in the Roses

I kinda wish this was easier.

I walked through the forest


I felt the shot moments before i heard it.

I awoke in a haze,

I looked up and saw your eyes gazing into mine.

I closed my eyes and slept.

I awoke again,

Was it a dream?

I tried to stand up

I noticed the bandages

moments before i crumpled to the ground.

The pain moved through out my whole body.

I wondered why?

I wondered why my heart was the only thing not in pain.

I looked around and saw you sitting there.

Not quiet smiling.

You held my head and told me your story.

I told you mine.

I watched you cry.

I held mine back.

Over the soft red petals i saw the faint out line of a man.

He approached and you lowered my head back to the ground.

Your voice changed and you ran to meet him,

I watched as you slowly planted a kiss on his cracked lips.

I noticed the rifle hanging from back.

I said nothing.

I made my way home and only thought of your smile.

After awhile i returned to the roses.

I sat beneath the moon and sighed.

As I began to stand

I saw you.

You ran to me and we embraced,

I listened once again.

A different man came to that hill,

You ran to him like the other.

I returned home,

This time i didn't hold back the tears.

I wanted to do more than sigh in the roses.
