For His Rose

by sweetwoodjax

a dozen roses upon the shelf
priced above his expectations
he smiles sadly at the clerk
as he shuffles away
tears form in his eyes
as clerk gifts one
sweet flower
for his


Thank you to garygb for beautiful rose

This is based on a song where a man went to buy his daughter a rose for her grave and couldn't afford it.
