A chapter in the book Blessed is the Fragile Heart

The Rose Fades

by Just2Write

I find it sad to watch a flower die.
The sorrow in my heart can't be denied.
There's nothing more to do but wonder why
our precious dreams must now be turned aside.

Your tender love is that which helped me grow.
You nurtured me and never let me fall.
I could not live without you, this I know;
you gave me strength when I had none at all.

Yet every rose that blooms must one day fade;
Its essence and its memories will blend.
Throughout the years you'll savour what we made
before our road together reached an end.

I know to say good-bye will cause you pain,
So I'll just say, "until we meet again."


My thanks to GallaG for the useof this exquisite rose.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
