The Rose That Cried (poem)

Updated on October 15, 2012

A brand new day had just begun

Its blessing shown on everyone

A man in garden having fun

Amid his flowers kissed by sun

Amazed at what his eyes there spied

The gentle rose that sweetly cried


Perhaps some haze had fooled his eyes

Had caused his mind to fantasize

But with his hope the heartbeats rise

Such beauty could he realize

And there his dreams were not denied

The gentle rose that sweetly cried


He called his love to come and see

To share with her this mystery

For through her eyes was he set free

To feel the Joys of what might be

In wonderment and tears she sighed

The gentle rose that sweetly cried


Who knows how long she gazed at sight

No time dare blemish pure delight

This precious moment she held tight

What was it called her soul to flight

What secret scent did there abide

The gentle rose that sweetly cried


And so it was they passed their day

As worldly matters drift away

And wishes shared what words would say

How did it all end up this way

What kiss of life could it confide

The gentle rose that sweetly cried


She’s taken to that day he called

She found him in the garden sprawled

It seems as though his heart had stalled

The horrid sight by flowers walled

And there was weeping by his side

The gentle rose that sweetly cried

      Good poetry! He obviously loved his garden and therefore, I can think of worse places to die than to be surrounded by his beloved plants and that rose that cried. Tweeted and voted up.

      This is a really good poem. Every line was sincere and felt so honest. There's so much heartache and sadness in this piece but at the same time mirrors many people's reflection of their own lives. Nice work

      I have already read a couple hubs that have the tears already going, so another night of tears for me it seems . . . such sweetness in your sentiments expresssed here in the lovely scent of the beautiful rose and then to listen to the profoundly beautiful song, "The Rose," just breaks my heart into a million shattered pieces . . . I do hear now

      Just lovely Mh - My favorite by far by you . . .

      Voted Way up to the Heavens

      God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper
