Blood Red Rose And A little Bit of Nonsense.

Updated on March 26, 2011

Just a little bit of Nonsense

If I gave you a blood red rose, it's stem contains no thorns

would you retreat, turn your head and run far away from home.

I mean this to be a loving touch, I mean you not one bit of harm

For this blood red rose will not take away all your loving charm

I have watched you from afar, with no intention yet

Of throwing myself at your feet, in case I would regret

The very fact my gesture made, of only love sincere

to a long lost friend who has decided to re-appearĀ 

Come forth into the light, that I may see so clearly

That face upon my right that I hold so very dearly.

The sunlight catches your golden hair and that beautiful complexion so clear

That it takes my breath away, as night time begins to appear

From whence you came my love, with a kindly gesture yet

I crave to see that rose clutched tight to your chest.

If you can give me hope, of what my love may find

I will gather all my strength and get some peace of mind

Just to sit and hope that one day I will know

what true love can be and you can show me slow

      Hi Reynold, thank you so much for visiting, it is lovely to meet you. Now, I am very flattered that you voted me up because I really do struggle with writing poems. My two good Hub Pages friends Wayne Brown, and WillStar have been so helpful with their advice and are encouraging me to continue trying. I really do appreciate any advice with my writing and hope you will continue to help.

      I wrote a poem/lyric like this Called Stem of Thorns 3 decades ago. The idea was that the woman the guy was in love with was beautiful (like a rose) but underneath he discovered " a stem of thorns" I enjoyed this very much. You have this laid out beautifully and it is easy to understand. Keep up the great HUBS. Up one and beautiful. Hey! I'm now your fan!
