Flowers for the dead | Poetry

Why do the dead Receive the most flowers

Why not shower the living With more bouquets

A single rose…..I love you A nose gay……….you are special A fist full of wild flowers……you look lovely Even a shy violet can offer a smile

Yet custom tells us To give more flowers to the dead

It just seems so sad………….. Nearly as sad as the death
