Hanging over the edge, wishing, hoping, wanting.
The wind gently pushes me forward and away.
Sky turns blue, white and grey as I leave the comfort of stability.
Floor by floor the windows pass by, countlessly, endlessly.
Side to side I descend remembering the good days.
Rain, shine, breeze and all.
Nearing the end.
I smell the grass, flowers and leaves below.
Now far from what I called home, high above.
Landing with a soft touch.
I think of my brothers and sisters, my mother above all.
They will see me once again.
Laying here lifeless, hopeless.
The sun shines brightly upon me.
Not every rose has its thorn.
For I am a dying, withering, decaying pedal.
I smiled upon the world which now frowns upon me.
