Dying Flower (poem)

Wilting with no roots
Dying in the light
Struggling to survive
Fighting everyday for life
A big bright flower
In a small weak garden
Transplanted to a better life
Is still not, daily, thriving
The petals die
Fall to the ground
The leave so near death
As they turn brown
Encouraged with light
Nursed along
Showered with nurturing
But the flower won’t last long
How to save a flower
That’s afraid to live
How to make it reach the sun
So its true beauty it will give
How to rescue the flower
From slow and certain death
How to convince the flower
To take another breath
How long should the flower
Be given to fight
Before the garden is given
To the eternal garden of the night
