Red Rose, Red Rose

You were beautiful once, I suppose

Although the vine that once flowed

Has since shriveled, you've shown

A fallen rose petal…

Once upon a vine

Velvet petals would shine

Dining obviously on used time,

Because she loves me, she loves me not crimes

Another fallen rose petal…

Letting go so easily

Your leaves fall seamlessly

And now unseemingly

Your vine stands unappeasingly

And another fallen rose petal…

Wet cement holds their molds

Though long the beauty hadn't glowed

Forever now it shale bold

Imprints of love resting on future soles

Filling shoes and truth be told,

I now see beautiful footprints as they transpose…

These falling rose petals.

A beautiful Red Rose

You once were, I'd supposed

Now your petals lie, scold

On winters bed dying cold

You were beautiful once…I know

Now time has come for you too to go

So, die you Red Rose…a beautiful Dead Rose!
