    She entered the room full of roses
    So many that they covered the floor
    Leaving a mesmerizing scent of new
    Coupled with the freshly lit candles;

    She looked to him sitting alone in
    The corner, reading his word with
    His hands rested on his knees as he
    Slowly uttered whispers into the air;

    “Yes Father I will,” He spoke as he
    rose to his feet to embrace his love
    with adoration and gently kiss her
    brow as she surrendered to his hug;

    She entered the room angered by the
    Day, frustrated by the weight of life,
    And with one swift word she releases
    Words of pain and anger towards him;

    She speaks of anger and of yesterday
    Reliving the pains of another by yelling
    At the one who is near tearing at him
    Like a rabid dog seeking destruction;

    “Yes Father I will,” he whispers as he
    embraces her and she rejects his love
    only to find her hand within his as he
    looks to her and says, “Be still, my love.”

    Years pass as she enters the room full
    Of candles lit with dinner on the table
    And the sound of water running from
    The freshly drawn scented bath;

    She looked to him sitting in the corner,
    reading his word with his hands rested
    on his knees as he uttered whispers
    into the air, “Yes Father I will.”

    He rises from his corner and embraces her with
    a kiss on her brow and she cries when she looks
    to him saying, “Of all the pain I have put you
    through, why do you still do so much for me?”

    He gently leans back looking intently into her eyes
    with a hint of surprise on his face, he quickly smiles
    as he lays his hand over the cross that rested on
    his chest since the first day she ever saw him;

    He speaks words that sends shivers through
    her, leaving her limp in his embrace, blinded
    by the flood of tears flowing from the release
    of pain by his words sent from above,

    “I didn’t do it for you…”

    I particularly enjoy when a poet writes in three D and that is what you have done with this piece by allowing the reader to be stimulated on every level it was like watching a well scripted movie with a for reel story line and a moral lesson not to be missed.

    As usual your flow was smooth and clear and I enjoyed the read
