Flowers in Her Hair

She always loved to wear them

around her raven curls.

I said “That’s too flamboyant;

you’re not like other girls.”

She smiled and said “I like them,

And know you like them too.”

I said “I do, and flowers

look beautiful on you.”

And on the ship she traveled

it fell to hungry sea

The flowers that adorned her

came floating back to me.

She always loved to wear them

around her raven curls

And now I’ve no desire

for any other girls

For love had crossed an ocean

perilous, dark and deep

And now I see her flowers

bloom only in my sleep

I see them multicolored

Around her raven curls

She calls on me to save her

as the deep water swirls

And no I cannot save her

But even so I try

Before the deep blue claims her

Before she sinks to die

She takes the wreath of flowers

and breaking off a curl

She hands them to me smiling

As ocean winds a-twirl

She always loved to wear them

I still remember when

And when I live no longer

I’ll crown her once again.

She always loved to wear them

I’ll keep them here until

We walk the sky together,

And she will wear them still
