Scent of life. 

Scent of life. 

I got this smell out of nowhere

reminded of a childhood moment somewhere

What was it that made it so quaint

for a life lived with utmost despair

happiness found in the remnants of care

what was it that made it so quaint

Smells of life filled with a struggle to forget

forgiveness in the present to give

forgotten but only to begin

heart full of wishes never to be seen

what was it that made it so quaint

A mystery to a simple dame.

The perfume she never wore again.
