A Rose for You

A Simple Rose
Author: Kevan Mends

A simple rose I have found
It's not the flower that grows from the ground,
Its beauty is one of such delight ...
This rose is soft to the touch in all its perfection.

The envy for all the flowers in this garden
Its fragrance will consume your every obsession.
This rose must be a gift, a gift from above
A gift from Heaven to show us love.

Every morning I wake to see its petals glisten
Its easy to see how one could be so smitten
If love was a rose it would shine so bright
Because all I need is this rose in my life.

  4. What a lovely poem...thanks, La, for sharing.
    Good good luck on the tea towels. :))

  5. Very nice poem. Captures the essence of the rose. My grandmother told us before she died that she would come back as this lovely flower on a barren bush my folks had in their back yard. The following spring, one lone bud appeared on it, opening into a magnificant flower. To this day roses hold a special place in my heart.

  6. Gorgeous poem. Roses are always the best gift ever...real ones, ones in words, or even the aroma. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  11. Hello, this is the first time you step on your blog and I really like.
    You have a new follower!
    Skip to visit me, I'd appreciate your views on my page .. about a project that is close to myheart. Starting with beautiful and unique pieces "Vintage", becomes all the mostunconventional and different from what's out there .. a way to go a bit counter, but definitely something that guarantees originality and style .. the style that everyone has within himself.

    A hug ♥
    Staff PIUSC!

  12. Beautiful post and theme
    Happy Thanksgiving to you
