A Sign



Grey clouds accompanied by thunder
A sign inauspicious! they said
But happy she was,
Under the rain they would tie the knot!

Rain kissed roses he was bringing
Sunshine in his heart, a skip in his step
But a slip unfortunate, he didn't see
The roses lay scattered, the red all splattered.

Dressed in pretty, with dreams in her eyes
A life full of possibilities, she beamed...
Unaware, that he lay there...his last breath
whispering only her name.

Note: Prompt 'A Sign' for the August Photo a day challenge day 7. I'm running behind...with the lovely extended weekend, even my mind had gone off wandering :) :)
