Before It’s Too Late-Poem

Tell your loved ones
everyday that you
love them.
Make sure you
say these things
while they’re alive.

Bring them flowers,
write them notes,
never feel ashamed
of random acts of love.

The grave will steal
opportunities and
it will be too late!

The dearly departed
will never need what we can
do for ours while
they’re still breathing
here on Earth.

Mid-Life Crises-Poem

The five day old tulips are
a true mid-life crises.

coquettish beauty
and the wilting
that inevitably appears.

A visual promise that
defiantly says—
yes to life.

New Flowers

You said to me, “that the past is all I have.”

I responded:
Memories are like fragrances

A wise man said,
“Life has more to offer than you’ll ever know.”

Flowers For Me

The ones I got
for Fathers Day-

tips roses.

Roses the queen
of flowers, I once
planted a bunch.

I proposed in my
heart to plant
a rose garden-
some years back.

I told my loved
one, that flowers
would never be
missing from our

We have since moved
from that house.

Though every sabbath
I try my hardest
to remember to
decorate our
table with flowers.

The ones I have
are now

Still beautiful but
slowly losing their
youthful beauty.

when I look
at them, it’s
like looking
in the mirror.

Like A Thief


Behind my house
my neighbor
tends her garden.

Her labor and
yearly dedication,
to grow lovely flowers
brings me sensual joy.

The rich pink
blossoms and
ruby red roses—
framed by a
yellow lemon tree,
from my back window
every morning—
in a voyeuristic
captivates my

How can I deprive my senses?

I can’t—I steal
like a common thief,
enjoying them
as my own.
