SPRING WILL RETURN – REPRISE

A DEAD SUNFLOWER - B

By Charles Robert Lindholm

Denuded Flowers
Remain
A Stark Witness
Of A Summer Season
Past 

As Autumn
Slips Under
Winter’s Blanket
Of Snow
That Mother Nature
Covers Us With 

And We Dream Of Seasons
Past That Were
Filled With Love
And Blossoms
Blooming
In The Sunshine
Of Love
And The Tenderness
Of Gentle Breezes
And Soft Warm Rain 

Vivid Colors
Were A Proof Of Life
To My Soul
And The Touch Of Spring
Is A Treasured Memory
Of My Heart
That It Will Not
Surrender

And Through
The Dreamy Blur
Of Winter’s
Hibernation 

My Heart
And Soul
Have Hope
And Faith 

In The Love
And Joy
That Lies
In The Future 

And In The New
Life And Love
That Will
Find Me 

With
The Return Of Spring
