FOREVER

EnlightDid someone look askance when
you gave me fabric flowers
as if at 12 you should possess
some horticultural prowess?
Those dew-dropped yellow roses,
a mother’s day creation,
purchased without knowing
there could be such imitation,
have sat for fifteen years
on my sunny windowsill,
where I look at them and smile
and I know I always will.
