White Rose

They found the bones
Two months from the time
She was lost and gone

Through fallen ribcage
Weeds struggled for life
Reaching for the sun

A bracelet beside her glimmered
Its loss of an owner
Bereft and alone

If not for her letter
They’d never have found her
They’d never have known

Suicide is unfathomable
A moment of bleakness
She barely could own

And now of her sweetness
No murmurs are lasting
Except for her milk-white bones
