Fading Flowers

Dear love,


As time passed, the flowers faded

and so did our conversations

only meaningless words flowed

I looked for the same sparkle I once saw

in your eyes as you reflected vulnerability

the sparkle had faded

leaving a dull glaze

My urge to explore the earth's wonders

swim in the mysterious waterfalls

lay in the long grass full of secrets

I had that same urge with you

to see your deepest thoughts

to hear your dreams
