A Flower Past Its Bloom


A flower past its bloom
No longer inspires the moon
The glory that once to her belong
Is now lost to all those newly born

Unlike the sun who now must hide
To shine once more as a new day rise
A flower who has lost its prime
No longer has another chance
When all its petals have gone dry
Its beauty is deposed with time
