Fragrance brief like azaleas fair,
Misty moments, whispers shared,
Morning glory, radiant tale,
Dew drop wonder, forever ensnared.
Sparkling streams to rivers deep,
Entangled net, escape too steep,
Through the sands of time, the trail it bleeds,
At the bottom of the lake, the memories keep.
Bound and tied to a memory sweet,
The edges fray, the night guard sleeps,
Empty eyes, tears denied,
I wake one day, no laugh, no cry.
Fragrance new of lilies fair,
Tentative moments, lifetimes shared,
Twilight glow, soft, yet bare,
Moonlight magic, fleeting, rare.
