I hold on,
to a paper rose,
wishing for it,
to come alive before my eyes..

But the wind distracts me
with its impish smile,
and I let the rose
slip away to the skies..

From there, where it will go,
maybe I'll never know,
but I'll trace it with my eyes
for as long as I can follow..

I fashioned it
from a forgotten page
that rested between
dusty memories and yellowed days..

It smelled of a sweet yesterday,
with a hint of now,
but it's time to
let it go into tommorrow..

So I let my paper rose fly away,
and hope it showers
a little bit of itself,
over all my days to come..
