Just a poem.

The efflorescence of the lavender flower
Our connection,
The symbol of true love's power.
Our memory
As the scent aromatizes in my heart
Your soft lips
Just a memory, as we’ve strayed apart
Your gentleness
As faint as if we’d never met
Gripping loss
An eternity of memories left
Without you
Here I am again, my lavender girl
I love you
Forever and ever, you’ll be my world.

Lovely poem. I liked it a lot; it made me think of some of the love poetry of the Romantic period. (Mind that "true loves power" should really be "true love's power"; it is a genitive form).

Wonderful and sweet. I loved the way you started with the description of the flower and then moved onto describe the object of your affection, turning the whole poem into a metaphor. Really loved it
