(from) Better Than Sleep: Bruised Petals (2) – Around the dustbins roses fade

Around the dustbins
roses fade,
on bones and bottles
petals fall

Roses bloom and
fade and die:
remember me
for you and I

live longer than
the roses, we
love on and on
when hope is gone.

On bones and bottles
petals fall,
on love, and life,
in spite of all.
