Autumn Rose

Autumn Rose

Autumn sun shimmers
as late afternoon's red hue
casts romantic haze
over all I see
and remnants of a beautiful Rose
dictates my view
it's petals scattered
upon the Earth

I remember still
when she bloomed
with a Beauty that haunted
my Heart
and I was afraid
to cut her stem
in fear of losing
a friend

Yet Autumn comes
with Golden sun and stinging frosts
with a price so difficult
to comprehend

Only my tear remains
as a gorgeous petal
lays still on my palm
yet I will perserve
it's wonder
that I may evoke
the splendor
that melted my soul.
