Ode to a Rose



A Rose...
.....the queen of flowers,  its riveting loveliness encases a labyrinth of velvety petals, entrancing the bystander with its imperial fragrance.
A Rose...
.... stands poised as a single flower, while the beholder is captivated by the indefinite layers of twirling petals drenched with a sweet enthralling fragrance.
A Rose...
....admired for its relentless beauty and grace, mesmerizes the onlooker with its endless arrangement of silky petals enveloped in fragrant scent.


A Rose...
... a poetic muse....an intoxication.....
A Rose....is a love story....

Thank You, Friend.....

Alone, scared, helpless and sad....
- the gist of my feelings when I met you first,

A refreshing gust of breeze you were...
Uplifting surrounding friendly and warm,

You instantly saw the best in me
when I was convinced and certain there could not be any.

Your simple attitude, honest , kind and dear,
gave hope, assurance and light-hearted cheer.

Times I felt I've been pushed out to fend,
a gentle, caring hand you always had to lend.

I can never forget the countless times when you have given me courage to dare,
Only by your confidence in me, your encouragement, or you……..just by being there.

Thanx
