Plastic flowers

(via Pinterest.com)

Plastic flowers on the wall

Pinks, blues, yellows

Lovely colours all!

See them stand so proud and tall

In what had seemed to be an eternal spring

It’s in the fall when the pride consumes all

The times, the come and they go

Now faded beauties in ragged dresses

A memory of the past

Time has stripped them of their vanity

These flowers, they fondly remind me of you

Because you were plastic too.
