Gift of Love

This flower, a token
From me, to you
A symbol of love
To brighten your eyes
To lighten your heart
Together we can watch
As it fades and droops
And petals shed
Water greens and stagnates
Dust settles on its ragged remains
Until one day it rests
Amongst the days detritus
Is it a symbol still?
