Lilac

In a cursed dream
I saw myself
Throwing yellow flowers
Over my grandmother,
Yellow tulips
Laid in a black coffin,
Black tulips,
Forget-me-nots.
People staring 
Whispering questions.
Tears over my loved grandma,
Daffodils,
Roses,
Carnations,
Forget-me-nots.
A crown of pansies
And a kiss on the forehead,
Lilies,
Daisies,
On the hands and shoulders,
Dandelions,
Carnations,
Beautiful, opened eyes
Saying goodbye,
With tears 
And forget-me-nots.
