A Bee And A Flower

"I missed you like death" said the flower… "Where have you been all this time?"… "I waited until I lost my faith"… "Why were you late? My petals lost there brightness… my odor is barely sensed"… "I don't want to die like someone who came for nothing"…

"Oh! My sweet flower of life!" said the bee… "I missed you so much"… "I left my home to come & see you"… "You were the most beautiful one on earth & you are always the same"… "But I see you are misevaluating yourself"… "Don't you see everything is ok?!"…

"I felt the time eating me my little bee" said the flower… "I felt the seconds a day, & the day a year when you were away"… "When I was born I sent you a message with the soft breeze… and since then I'm hearing your sound around… filling my ears… but even I couldn't see you… I heard your voice even while sleeping… he didn't stop until I'm not sleeping anymore"… "Do you see? I missed you until becoming weak"…

"I'm here my dear… at least now" said the bee… "I was signing the universe with my name so I can return one day to my home"… "I'm so sorry it took all this time"… "I missed you, I needed you and still"… "Yes, I need you to reach my destiny"… "I need you to become a king as my queen said"…

"Oh! Sweetheart! As I need you to become eternal!" said the flower… "Yes, it's my elixir that you need"... "Take the soul that is made just for you… fly back while signing again the world with our name… sign it again & again… so everyone will know how life is beautiful when we are together… when unified"…

A soft kiss filled the atmosphere with the most beautiful smell… no one sound but the bee wings song… the flower's petals were contracting with every musical note…
It was a moment of love… the bee left glorious a flower that became grains… while he signed the sky with beauty…
He reached his real home finally; he put the gift in the hexagons… and he received for that the queen's crown …
A second day has risen, and hundreds of bees met the life to replay the same story…
