answered prayers

a red velvet rose isn't a flower

without the silken smooth petals

a night sky can't be beautiful

with the absence of shining stars

arctic winter days aren't worth it

if the glistening snow won't fall

the sandy beaches lack tranquility

when waves stop crashing ashore

love can't justly be known as love

by mere words and no actions

pieces of literature isn't interesting

without the conflicts and plotlines

a woman can't grow and mature

without knowledge of love and loss

nothing can be contently completed

if the end holds no final page

life loses resolves to be bright

when your brilliant flare is gone;

perhaps the angels were right

you are my answered prayers
