The Last Petal

I always thought we would be together
Someday

So I waited flower in hand
Waiting for that day
Wondering what I would say
As time began to slip away

Suddenly, you arrived
Only to lock the door again
I never got a chance to say, “Hello”
Or “Good-bye”

Now what to do I?
No longer waiting for you

At once I realize
I have wings to fly
All this time?
The sun begins to rise

I wipe the tears from my eyes
Is this my demise?
Why do I feel stronger than before?

When the flower has died
The last petal fell
