King of Marigolds
You are the King of Marigolds,
To marigolds, your memory holds,
And every year I think of you
When summer ends and takes the dew
This latent pain refills my brain,
And all these tears I can't contain.
What I wouldn't give to bring
You back. I would give anything
For just a day to sow the seeds
Of marigolds, and tend their needs
Until they come into fruition,
Until this grief has seen eviction.
