Tender Rose

A silent spring breeze
opened my petals with ease
with the tulips and lilies around to greet me
the sun, the sky longed to meet me
it was like as if the heaven wind blew over me
nature was all there to care
a love I got was no doubt so rare
and I’ll always remember your love
your care, your sincerity
your affection, your earnestness
that you bestowed on this tender rose
made me stand at times when being tired I dozed
made me see through times when I failed to find my direction
for I’m the plant that has grown in your hands
and whatever I’ll be
I’ll always carry your light inside of me

The morning breeze cherished my cheeks
the doves kissed me by their beaks
the butterflies with all their colors loved me
the clouds smiled as they moved to shadow me
with the daffodils moving in joy, singing songs with honey bee
it was as if you were the candle
someone who would always be there to handle
anything at all if it may go wrong
you are the one to whom I belong
you’re the one for whom I long
and I’ll always remember your love
you opened my eyes and made me see illuminating horizon afar
for who wanted me to reach as high as a star
your unconditional love that you bestowed on this tender rose
made me stand at times when being tired I dozed
made me see through times when I failed to find my direction
for I’m the plant that has grown in your hands
and whatever I’ll be
I’ll always carry your touch inside of me
