Yet Fate Had Not Their Favor

Time has passed, the flowers have grown.

I’ve learned new things you’ve never known.

They’re both tragic, they’re both lost.

They’ve found their way through greatest cost.


Carpe diem, the old ones say;

Live your life so you can savor.

They took the chance, they seized that day,

Yet fate had not their favor.


The illusion of light was bright and hopeful.

The snow had glistened, inviting and graceful.

Then shadows surrounded, and took them away.

Carpe diem; seize the day.


They’ll be led through this soon,

Their foundations made of stone;

Forever scarred and always frightened

That it will be left alone.

(This poem is the sequel to After the Flowers have Grown.)
