Lovely Rose

Updated on November 17, 2019

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida with my wonderful cat Sid.

Don’t sorrow so,

I know your dying,

the cold winds are blowing

and your petals -

like so many tears are falling.

Your beauty is unsurpassed

and comes the warm sun,

that will shine in the spring,

will soon bring new life to you -

so in beauty you’ll bloom again.

Your fragile beauty,

is like a love that is new,

never knowing if it is true,

needing nurturing,

with heartfelt kisses,

so you need the kisses,

of raindrops from the sky,

to make you strong.

So don’t sorrow as your petals fall about,

remember that you’ll just sleep,

in frozen winter slumber,

until nature awakens you once more

and then you’ll raise your head -

in splendor and loveliness.

So rose don’t sorrow any more,

it won’t be long,

before the spring comes again

and you’ll come blossoming forth,

smiling and radiant once more –

the reigning queen beneath the summer sun.

      The life cycle of a rose is a comforting reminder that no matter what darkness befalls us, the sun will once again shine to warm our hearts.

      Beautiful piece, Rasma!

      A wonderful poem which reminded me of my own rose garden and how much pleasure and hard work it gives me. Lovely music.

      I have 6 yellow rose bushes that I need to cut back. Your poem is very beautiful and Bette Midler is one more of my favorites. I loved listening to The Rose once again.

      Beautiful. Today I trim them up. My roses are my friends. This touched my heart and thanks for knowing the Rose in such intimacy. The song I love.
