I watched as petals

You watched as petals floating on the tides
Of autumn winds begin their slow descent,
Fall quietly to the ground like jilted brides
Where dreams and hopes lie wasted and are spent.
Yet even at the end when tears are shed,
Let not your heart be hardened by such woe,
And in its mercy let, whats dead be dead,
But in its heartbreak let its beat be slow.
For there is nothing spoken that will prise
The faltering hopes that mingle with the dust.
Let not false words of wisdom cloud the eyes
Believing something that your heart can’t trust.
For in your heart you felt the bitter blow
The lovers death and this all lovers know.
