What a lonely flower,
A lonely flower which grows under the tallest tree,
In the most luscious forest.
I visit this flower from time to time.
I have grown to love this flower.
With its vivid blood red petals and long green stem.
“You’re such a beautiful flower,”
“I love the way you sparkle when the sun gently kisses your face,”
“I love how you dance in the cool forest breeze,”
“Do you know how much I love you?”
A peaceful silence fills t’he air,
A cool breeze slowly kisses my cheek,
I stare at my beautiful flower and smile.
“Do you feel sad when you’re alone?”
A small blood red petal falls silently to the forest floor.
“Why do you cry my flower?”
“I’ll stay with you forever so you don’t have to be lonely anymore.”
As a second petal falls gently to the forest floor,
A tear forms and drips smoothly down my face,
“Please don’t leave me.”
My flower begins to sway and a cool gentle breeze wipes away my tears.
“Do you have to go?”
The cool breeze continues.
I hear a faint whisper flowing through the forest.
It was the most peaceful voice I had ever heard.
“Its time for me to leave you; thank you for staying with me,
I will no longer be a lonely flower,
I‘“ll remember you always; I love you,’
Another tear drips down my face.
The last of my beautiful flower’s petals falls to the forest floor.
I pick up one of the delicate petals and hold it to my heart.
“Good bye my beautiful flower; I love you too.”
