I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Death touches love is a poem about the angel of death overhearing a prayer asking for a bouquet of roses. She does not understand why anyone would desire a flower we leave on graves. She asks God to help her to understand. Holding a rose in her hand, God lets her feel love for the first time.

Death Touches Love
The angel of death is bewildered
overhearing a prayer,
desiring a bouquet of roses
from a romantic partner.
She asks God to explain
why a symbol of grief
with thorns that cut,
that make one's heart bleed,
left behind on a loved one's grave
could be someone's desire.
She gazes into the petals of a red rose
the angels placed within her hands
beholding its’ delicate beauty,
sensing a warm, emotional, feeling of pleasure,
embracing her heart with joyful tears falling from her eyes,
feeling passionate love for the first time.
