Rose Petals Scattered On the Wind

Rose Petals Scattered On the Wind …

Rose petals scattered on the wind,

hearts left bleeding by the roadside,

tears flowing like raging rivers,

stormy skies up above.

The wind howls,

the nights are long,

there is no happy song –

dancing in the hurricane of lost love.

Time to consider burning bridges,

leaving it all behind,

finding a shining future –

on some distant shore.

Storms rage angrier,

within broken hearts,

that seem to barely beat

and only want to retreat.

Daydream take them back,

to the way things used to be,

sweet songs of times gone by –

still playing in the mind.

Rose petals scattered on the wind,

like so many lies

and false promises.

No more tender words of love,

time hangs heavy on the mind,

remembering the days,

of holding hands

and sharing kisses so sweet.

So the brokenhearted,

must do soul searching,

finding someway to trust again –

if love should knock on the door.

The scent of the roses still lingers,

though the petals have swirled away,

memories still abound

far into the dark of night.

No comfort anywhere,

no one to save the brokenhearted,

that keep crying,

keep longing,

keep remembering,

sweet moments that are now just –

rose petals scattered on the wind…
