This immortal rose that lovers seek

 

will be glimpsed by all in youthful peak

 

for her presence will be on every corner.

 

 

 

And those who confuse that heady perfume

 

with a lust for love,

 

will only find winter in an unknown heart

 

for beauty was always a fragile thing.

 

 

 

 We who have seen this gift from above

 

will always get burned by its light.

 

The poet and the painter

 

have perfumed our existence

 

with loves testimony to this.

 

 

 

The pain and tears fall on empty shield

 

 for love will break your heart

 

but when we reach out to hold the rose

 

picked from these fields of hope,

 

a moment in life unfurls,

 

 love will kiss your soul

 

and the world belongs to you.

 

 

 

Fleeting are the petals of time

 

the rose is a symbol to love.

 

For others it is the pain of life,

 

to find and lose this immortal gift

 

leaves a desert where life cannot breathe.

 

 

 

 The laughter replaced by silence

 

the smile that is kept in darkness,

 

the kiss exiled to the memory.

 

 

 

Love is lost in the deepest pit

 

of your despair,

 

the thorns will bleed your soul red

 

but she can never die.

 

 

 

Love will always leave a spark

 

that will lead you to redemption

 

and only death can take this from you.

 

 

 

The rose was never yours to pick

 

but its creation yours to admire

 

for your being was made for this.

 

 

 

And as our mortal bodies die

 

 the spirit will seek the rose once more

 

for in death its petals fall too

 

blessing the ground of your resting place.

 

 

 

The rose was always yours

 

and its beauty a source of life

 

the chains of doubt will always

 

break in its presence.

 

 

 

The rose is pure

 

as is your faith in mankind.

 

It can show you a deeper meaning

 

for you are the petals of life

 

she is the perfume of your existence

 

 and it is you that made her life complete.
