Poem
Whenever I see Yellow Roses
I am reminded of you
Sweet, beautiful and elegant
They were your favorite too
Whenever I see Yellow Roses
I am reminded of your laughter, your smile
Your hopes, dreams and ambitions
Now it’s all futile
Whenever I see Yellow Roses
I am reminded of your life taken too soon
A young flower gone forever
You weren’t given a chance to bloom
Whenever I see Yellow Roses
I am reminded of that dreadful day
“Sorry, she’s got Human Mad Cow Disease”
Was all they could say
Whenever I see Yellow Roses
I am reminded that you are not here
Taken away by a man-made disease
By greedy people who didn’t care
Whenever I see Yellow Roses
I am reminded of the suffering you had to endure
Our prayers couldn’t save you
We couldn’t find a cure
Whenever I see Yellow Roses
I am reminded of the day you took your last breath
I can still picture you in your father’s arms
So peaceful in death
Whenever I see Yellow Roses
I just want to cry
I keep asking myself WHY
