rose

 

Your love is like a red, red rose

which blooms upon the bleak terrain

of my discouraged soul

 

Despite the remote darkness of these forest depths

your solitary splendor welcomes me

with perpetuality

 

Amidst the obscure valleys of  impenetrable fog

your luminous blossom glows

enticingly to me

 

Within the frigid landscape of this frozen tundra

your love’s blossoom is ablaze

with your desire for me

 

Although the parched terrain of this arid desert

threatens desiccation

your blossom glistens moist with morning’s dew

 

And as you grace this grim terrain

with your tenacious blossom

it causes me to pause with awe and wonder

 

For to tenderly behold your rare and vibrant love

unyeilding to the harshness of the elements

here in this barren land

 

Sustains this bud of hope

and assures the footsteps of my wandering

as I journey ever onward

into the precious, priceless beauty of your love
