Memories of Flowers


Memories of flowers
I gathered just for you
In your darkest hours
I cared for you
I reached out to help you
And show you the way
To light your direction
To the path of better days
To show you there was hope
Beyond the shadows and the gray
To lift the clouds of sadness
And take the darkness away
To fill your heart with sunshine
And melt the cold away
To help you find the happiness
You thought lost and gone away
And with the kindest heart
Breathe new life into your days ...

As usual I enjoyed your beautiful poetry, but I'm confused. Did you gather MEMORIES of flowers, or actual flowers?

The reason I ask, is because anyone can tell me that they gathered memories of something. And I'd have to believe them.

Maybe they would be telling the truth; but for all know, they forgot to gather actual flowers until it was too late.

I'm just hoping I don't get a Secret Santa* (* sorry, I'm about to turn in, and am too tired to explain what a Secret Santa is, but you can Google it) this year who claims they are giving me memories instead of an actual, returnable-for-store-credit item.

XX,
Pugsly

Leovi said...

Wonderful poem, I filled the day of optimism, thanks Dianne. Kisses.

Pantherka said...

Wow, it's beautiful.

dianne said...

Juan querido amigo, gracias por tu comentario preciosa, eres tan viejo como te sientes y siento que usted es muy joven de corazón, tus imágenes y fantasías muestran todos los días.
Un fuerte abrazo
xoxoxo ♡

dianne said...

Thank you Pugsly my sweet, for your lovely comment, I am pleased that you enjoy my poetry.

I did actually gather flowers for someone I cared for very much when he was going through a very difficult time in his life. Not only flowers but words of support and kindness to show that he was not alone in his sadness.
My poem is actually about the memories these flowers evoked, why I gathered the flowers for this man whom I still care for and the time when it all took place. Yes, I did gather flowers not just memories.

Yes, my sweet I do know what Secret Santa is, usually a disappointment as many people are too miserable to buy a nice gift.
I always bought something nice, so you would not have to return my gift at the store.

This morning I woke up and thought I needed your flowers,

Dear Elia my sweet friend, I pray each day that you will wake with a weight lifted from your heart which is broken.

I hope in time you can wake again to days of peace of mind and eventually find your way back to happiness.

I am here always for you, with my words of comfort, a warm embrace, a balm to ease your heart at this time of sadness...if these flowers and my words bring you comfort then they are here for you too.

Take care my little friend, all will be new again, in time your heart will mend, this I know.

Love, hugs and kisses, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Evanir said...

Já lhe disseram alguma vez que você é uma pessoa muito especial?
O seu carinho é tão contagiante que se eu estiver me sentindo triste
suas mensagens sempre conseguem me alegrar.
Já lhe disseram alguma vez o quanto sua presença é importante
para muitos e principalmente para mim?
Só o fato de você existir já é motivo de alegria
Você é uma pessoa muito especial
e sua amizade é muito importante para mim.
Olimpya Ferraz
Creia você significa tudo isso na minha vida
Sem seu carinho e amizade meus dias são nublados e tristes.
Carinhosamente te desejo um abençoado final de semana
beijkos na sua alma,Evanir.

dianne said...

Evanir, querido amigo, obrigado por suas belas palavras de elogio para mim. Não, não há nada de muito especial sobre mim, eu sou apenas uma mulher sensível que se preocupa com sua família, amigos, as pessoas ao meu redor e os meus seguidores. Espero que de alguma maneira que as minhas palavras fazer a diferença, embora alguns sejam muito triste, eles são do meu coração. Está tão doce e gentil comigo meu amigo e eu estou tão indignos de tal elogio.
Você é a pessoa muito especial e eu desejo tudo que é bom em sua vida.
Desejo-lhe uma semana abençoada com carinho e beijo na sua alma doce.
Dianne
