A Poem of Wild Daisies

I want to write a poem where every line makes you smile

Like wild daisies along the road catch the corner of your eye

I want my words to touch the center of your heart

Between the breaths of joy from an unexpected breeze

But in our longing for the familiar company of one another

The contagion of laughter has evaporated from the plains, and

We’ve become weary travelers seeking refuge from the wrath of another impending storm

It is through all this fog of certainty that I must write to remind you

The sun doesn’t know how not to shine,

and the mountains never cower to the snow

There is no fretting found in the pasture of green where the horses graze

And amid these hazy days that cover us with doubt,

we’re still held within nature’s palm of peace

So please don’t be discouraged during these distant days between us

Seek a little solace in the words of our favorite song

Because it won’t be long til we’re sharing life again heart to heart

Sitting underneath the shade of an old tree forest while I read to you

A poem of wild daisies I gathered along the miles of days we spent apart
