For Steve…

How can I be so beautiful?

Then disappear before your eyes

I’m here today, then off I go

I know you’ve wondered why

Perhaps it’s meant to happen

Paving the way, for another bloom

Upon the stalk, that holds me up

Perchance, it needs more room

Though I am here to dazzle, it seems

For merely a day or two

My time here, is a short one

So I’ve blossomed, just for you
