Today I mourn a loss and weep in shame
Yes, today let us all remember his name
I remember so well, you were just a seed
Planting you into the warm soil so carefully
It was a warm spring in two thousand nine
You transformed, you peeked, you shined!
Oh yes, I remember the first time you drank
I smiled and was proud of you to be frank
I nourished you completely from my heart
The sun warmed your bed magic did start
Gave you only the best fertilizer I found
Soon you would peek from the ground
We shared rainbows the sky bestowed
The droplets that fell to help you grow
Oh these tears that seep from my eyes
Is the shame, the guilt within me lies!
How could I let this happen! I apologize!
My tummy rumbled and before I realized
I grabbed the first thing that was in my sight
It was you, oh God! You held on so tight!
I tried to fight the urge, Oh, I swear I did
Something came over me past lips you slid
Your vinegar spice just danced on my tongue
Crunching so harshly not a chance to run
Oh gosh, I'm so sorry these tears won't cease
Now I'm left here with just our memories
Can you forgive me as you pass on through?
I know that will be very difficult to do
I'm going to close with a simple prayer
I want you to know that now I'm fully aware
I should have not snacked on you or your kin
Believe me my belly still hurts since I sinned
Please watch over my green friend that's sour
Place him back in the soil to raise and flower
Let him feel no pain, rid him of any sorrow
Holding my gut, I'll cry today and tomorrow
Authors note: Before you all commit me to
the funny farm I have to tell you this was
one of those ummm challenges from our
sweet and kind Jollynoblefrog awhile back.
