The Rose: A Delicate Replica
Have you ever looked at a rose?
And observed how it portrays passion and feelings,
For me, the long stem means the road a person must take in life;
The cracks and crevices are our stumbling blocks,
And the fine velvet petals are the patches of goodness in life: of laughter and joy; families and friends,
And in the end,
When you put these pieces together, you will realize that life was, and is beautiful,
And most importantly, you have loved,
And have found love…
All your life, no matter the season, even spring.
If you don’t believe me, look around
The sun shining through your window is enough for you to feel love.
And if you have a bad day,
Refer to this poem,
And put all the formulas together, so you can create one perfect rose …
For you, only you.
