The Rose

      I have found a perfect Rose       Growing in the forest       I found it growing there       Without love and care       If you were to see       You would not doubt me       I thought I was blessed       To see it alone and exposed       I bent down to take a closer look       The stem was thick and strong       The leaves were the prettiest green       And the petals were the deepest red you have ever seen       How could this perfect thing be,       Growing in this black sea?       She had to be very headstrong       To keep on being overlooked       I have found my perfect Rose       Blooming in the forest,       To pick it do I dare?       I know I would give her love and care       Will she always be happy,       Living her life with me?       So I will confess       She is the one I choose       Will she become withdrawn,       If I take her from her birthplace?       I pray to god that this could be,       A new life for her and me       It must be written in the cosmos       So I will bring this to a close       If I am blessed with her grace       Her heart will never long!             1-17-00  Niven             To my Rose, Kristine
