Heart Of The Rose
Rose Flower

You are for me as the sun and rain

is to life

With your love I will bloom

as the fairest rose 

in your garden and 

like the rose 

my alluring fragrance 

will fill the air you breathe

and you

will want to come closer

to touch the softness of my skin and

with each passing day

I will unfold

and share my inner beauty

only with you 

for as long as I am allowed

to be the only rose

in your garden, but understand

that like the rose

the protection of thorns

will turn you away 

should you touch me and

your intentions be 

less than true.
