Ode to a Tiny Cactus, Reprise

A sad pallor of brown
Leaves you unfit to be seen
Beloved tiny cactus
You are no longer so green

I knew this was coming
Struck down in your prime
Your days were indeed numbered
Just a matter of time

Left alone on a sill
To bask in the bright sun
I regret I forgot you
Now your life is quite done

Once again I have failed
Little care did I give
Life necessitates water
How long did you live?

My dear, tiny cactus
My heart fills with sorrow
To the trash you are destined
And forgotten tomorrow
