Autumn Rose

Autumn sun shimmers
as late afternoon's red hue
casts a beautiful 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 preserve
its wonder
that I may evoke
the splendor
that melted my soul.
