One little rose
W. K. Hayes
One Little Rose
One little rose
He stood on her doorstep with a single rose in his hand
His heart feels such passion for her that he finally took a stand
He dared himself to confess the love for her in his heart
So, there he stood at her door hoping for a light in the dark
Tapping gently on the door he waited for her
When the door slowly slide open, “Can I help you, sir”
Her mother asked him in a suspicious tone
“I’ve come to speak with your daughter if we may be alone”?
She saw the flower he held in his hand and replied,
“You are not worthy to pursue my daughter”, she sighed
The man hung his head as he turned to walk away
What she said was true but hearing it crushed him that day
As he walked down the steps he heard the daughter’s voice
“Wait”, she called out as she told her mom, “It’s my choice”
He stopped and turned to look at her, as he mom went inside
She could see the little tear that had yet to dry
“I’m sorry my mom is overly protective of me
But, she sometimes doesn’t know went to let me be”.
“I just wanted to see you”, he said as he wiped a tear from his eye
“I wanted to tell you that I love you”, he said with a heavy sigh
He stuck out his hand with the one little rose for his love
As he watched her eyes well up, he thanked the heavens above
“I would have given you twelve but I am, truthfully, too poor
But, here’s the one little rose that I could afford”
She took the rose from his shaking hand and smiled
“Come sit on the porch and talk with me for a while”
They sat on the porch and talked ‘til the setting of the sun
After her mom apologized for what she had done
For the mother had watched the gift her daughter got that day
And, she realized that her daughter had a love that would not go away
She brought them something to drink and there she left them alone
Knowing that true love have entered into her home

You are not alone! Most people suffer from relationship abuse and don't even know it is happening. Mental abuse is just as damaging as physical abuse and you deserve better.
