Just a poem about death.

The Red Rose standing tall and proud,

Remember me, it says,

Remember the past left behind,

Try not ever forget.


The Red Rose filled with blood and tears,

Memories of what's been done

Memories of pain can strengthen

To forgive and forget.


A rose I place in your sleep

Your eternal slumber

A rose planted to remember

Here to sleep on your grave.


The rose standing with purpose

Remember me it sighs

Remember my past and shed tears

Do not ever forget.
