To My Child (as i die), by N.E. Avery

To my Child (as i die)

"the flower in
the garden knows
of death
as it dies slowly
each autumn.

but does the sun
mourn the dew
drops in the
afternoon?

nor should you
mourn the flower.

Let it go, it will come back again.
Let me go, I will begin again."

Sometimes I get very poet like. Melancholy. I don't always write sad poems but sometimes the sad ones somewhere are a little comforting. I've been struggling a lot with my mother's passing last September. So sad is kind of on my mind.
