Lily Sweet

Lily Sweet long poem

Photo by F. D. Richards


For years she has waited for this day
you didn’t have much to say but I
guess it’s better that way anyways
she says she would write but they knew
she was glad to be getting out of here
and she did not shed one single tear
he took her hand and said don’t be
afraid now hence forth our wedding day
And now the Angel has earned her
wings don’t you know a heart has to
follow its dreams, in the shadow of an
older man and a set of golden rings
oh lily of the valley, sunshine over
a mountain spring, finding herself
following her dreams and the Angel
has found her wings…
And with child he holds her and tells
her LILY SWEET I know you will
make a good mother she say for the
first time in my life I truly feel alive
and then after another five the light
of love still shines bright in her eyes
And now the Angel has earned her
wings don’t you know a heart has to
follow its dreams, in the shadow of an
older man and a set of golden rings
oh lily of the valley, sunshine over
a mountain spring, finding herself
following her dreams and the Angel
has found her wings…
but time and child birth and the
Spanish influenza took its toll on
her little body and six months after
her new born Heaven set her spirit
free, but she held on just long enough
to kiss them all goodbye, then she
quietly died, it was the first time he
ever cried and now the Angel has really
earned her wings in the valley of the
lily, LILY SWEET in the valley of the
lily!
