I Still Have That Rose

I Still Have That Rose

1 min 215 1 min 215


I have that rose,

Nestles on velvet,

Inside the jewel box,

For you that I bought.


Imbued with memories;

Is each petal-

Blackened, frail,

Token of old love.


Long ago it'd lost,

Its moisture of love;

Moisture in eyes

Is still what remains.


It shatters with

Even gentle touches;

With eyes, tenderly,

I touch it enough.


A tear falls;

Soon it permeates,

The rose's shriveled,

Still remains dead.


I close the box,

And my teary eyes.

To the heaven, I say-

"I still have that rose."
