Bring Me a Basket of Roses

Bring me a basket of roses now,
so I may bury myself in their beauty
while I’m alive –
don’t wait until I can no longer
drown my senses deeply in the intoxication
of their scent, so full of tang and sweet commingled.

Bring me a basket of roses now,
so I can pull apart those petals, so precious-laden
with colored light, and strew them,
careless in their torn, uneven beauty,
onto my bed, so freshly made up in the softest linens.

Bring me a basket of roses today,
no – every day,
so when I’m dead I will have nothing left
of dark regret.
