A Rose Reminder

A yellow rose blooming along the path
Bears the name of my love
Its velvet petal greeting a daily reminder
She is not with me

As constant as the morning my steps
Bring me to stand before the flower
Its perfume scenting the air
With the memory of her

I attend the yellow blossom with tender touch
Preserving its beauty as long as I can
The thorny stemmed sunshine piercing my heart
With the hope one day she will return
