Life comes from the earth. We are loved and gently return.
A fading rose,
edges crinkled
fragrance delicate
so softly wrinkled

A promise to fulfill
once again, as before
a sacred treasure
part of our earth

This is how we die
simply a letting go
back to where
we all belong

A fading rose
worn and wise
aged beautifully
sublime on the inside

Petals fall gently
perfume faint, light
subtly changing
from bold and bright

A promise to fulfill
once again, as before
a sacred treasure
part of our earth

we are born, we blossom
we love and are beloved
blissfully we meet our end
when life is possible no more
