F is for FORGET-ME-NOT

Photograph courtesy of Wikipedia

Pressed into a petite maidens hand,
a young sailor gifts his loved one
with bouquets of this sweet flower.

Forget-Me-Not he whispers.

The same flower brings good luck, it’s said, to those young people whose duty
calls them far away from home.

Forget-Me-Not they say.

A long wedding gown, a Mother’s happy tears flow past channels
of age upon her face.

Forget-Me-Not she cries.

A husband of many years
kneeling in the church, a casket
draped in her favorite flowers.

Forget-Me-Not he remembers.
