Tell the bees - Kelly Marie McDonough

Tell the bees

My lover’s dead,

But I am still alive.

Whisper solemn words of grief

When you notify the hive.


Tell them not my depth of pain,

My heart’s an open wound.

Send my love beyond the grave,

Say I will see him soon.


Tell the bees to carry on,

They can rest well in your care.

Every journey has a destination,

And I am nearly there.


Bid them luck on their sweet endeavor,

Sometimes gone is not lost forever.

The flowers speak to that.
