I kept my dried rose on a leaf
I have sweetly taken you from the ground that I stepped on.
I see colors of purple and red all over you.
You emit your dried fragrance.
Your dried fragrance is on the ground.
I know your fragrance is not that great now.
I waited the long days back to smell you.
I cannot resist putting you on a dried leaf in the corner of the flowerbed.
I see that you and the dried leaf are lonely like me.
I hope I did the right thing by putting you and the dried leaf together as imaginary friends.
It nurtures my heart to see both of you together.
I will walk away.
I hope dear rose that you hold onto the dried leaf until other changes fade you away.
I look at your life as a dried rose on a leaf that was not alone to fade away.
