Murray – Orchid Petals

Orchid Petals

When the last orchid blossom dies
petals fade, wilt, turn to parchment
fall, drop off
Is that a sign?
Valentine bloom.
Did he love you then?

Tender, passionate lover
once center of your world
Betrayed, bolted
Gone …..
Will you stop awaiting his return,
accept  finality,
live without him?

He called it ‘moving forward’
meant leaving you behind
If you meet a year from now
How will you feel?
Will you feel at all?
