  1. He called her Rose Bud
    Tasting the sweetness he loved
    No longer weeping

  2. Thanks. Does it hold up in meaning without the picture? I’m always so literal with these things! ha ha! I suppose I could change the “wedding day” to “wedding cake”…

  3. The somber ombre sky of fading summer storms
    a grey echo of our wedding day
    Stale and frozen cascading roses
    a sickly-sweet reminder of the future
    crushed before the buds ripened.
    I leave the cake topper on your grave
    Happy Anniversary Darling
