Funeral Flowers

I was born to be a funeral flower

to be placed on wreaths

I lose my sparkle to the tearful faces

and my fragrance to lifeless forms

I am a part of the environment,

the face of grief

 

The bridal flowers pity me,

and I tell them,

“You are just an addition to the joy

But I am a source of comfort

I am not here to allure

or be admired

I am here to honor

The beings gone to the other world

I am the sole spark of life

in countless graves.”
