The rose


I see it there, a beautiful red rose,
Though now only a tiny green bud shows.
It will slowly blossom into an elegant flower,
That represents love on the midnight hour.
It's lovely petals so delicate and thin,
As a young girl's heart not so easy to win.
It's thorns draw blood with the prick of a finger,
As a heart bleeds with pain that seems to linger.
It's fragile leaves are easily torn apart,
As love can mend or break someone's heart.
Oh for love I would endure all the toil and strife
If to be unloved was not my lot in life
How can something so beautiful suddenly be withered and black?
While my heart weeps because of that widening crack
Why is it a rose represents a love so strong?
When it is suddenly wilted, dead, and gone.
