The Little Rose (poem)

The night had ended for this little rose

This simple token of a poor boy’s heart

It was his gift to bless the evening’s start

Yet few would know the depth this poor boy chose


He grew this flower knowing of this night

And through its days they shared the dream he planned

The rose she wore was crafted by his hand

To share a wondrous moments of delight


Now there it lay the final kiss had passed

Was this the final purpose of its life

And if he knew he too would feel the knife

Had love like rose now truly seen the last


Into a memory a lasting look

She placed the rose inside a special book

Beautiful! It should remind us of how beautiful and fleeting our own life can be. We should all take advantage of our bloom!
