ODE TO MY ROSE
Pink roses, always pink, your favourite colour,
Oh mum, I still remember the day,
the bouquet of pink roses on my birthday,
a few months before you went away.
I see pink, I always think of you,
always in my heart
I love you x
Well tomorrow is the day mum,
that nightmare day in springtime May,
the day you went away.
You left me and I know why, indeed I know why,
but mum, it all still makes me cry.
Time has helped, but that nightmare cut deep,
kept me awake night after night,
just impossible to sleep.
God, I remember every detail that day.
The dog at the back howling, the unanswered phone,
I just knew something was wrong,
you should have been home.
But I waited and kept trying...and tried some more,
I somehow knew what was waiting as I unlocked your door.
Saying to myself...she's just at the shop,
but my soul was telling me...you know she's not.
I saw your bedroom door ajar, the silence as I called your name,
from the second I entered nothing would ever be the same.
My rose, my beautiful rose was laid on the bed,
empty pill bottle beside, and a plastic bag over your head.
You were dead.
The beauty of pink had turned to crimson red,
it was suicide...my mum was dead.
I miss you mum, as the cherry blossom blows,
where the petals will fall, nobody knows,
send my love to dad, cos he was waiting for you,
Romeo and Juliet re-united,
I really want that to be true.
But we had some laughs and damn fine fun,
till we meet again.....
I love you mum xxxx
