Half of me is sorry
and insists we could have saved you
from the undeserved horror
and the pain that you went through

the other half is bitter
for a score of wasted years
where we shrank behind the shutters
in our homes of brittle tiers

all of me is hollow
like the heart within my chest
remembering those yellow
roses that we laid upon your lifeless breast.

Oh, this is so sad. How we humans tend to waste the gift of life we were given over such petty things when truth is, we are only a speck of dust in time and didn;t ought to waste a minute of it. Very difficult to lose someone you love. The yellow rose upon the lifeless breast is heart breaking.

Yeah many just sit in waste
Or through haste
Let life pass them by
Many a girl and guy

This sad, but necessary to wake those that aren't using their gifts.

It is so hard to lose someone you love! Time is a gift we can only
keep in our marches too fast~
