Roses



Roses

When you're a child
Roses stand guard
Intense as fairy tales
Mysterious as adults
Their hearts taking you down
Slim pipes of ecstasy.

Roses

When you're an adult
They talk silently
About love and heartbreak
Twirling their pink and crimson skirts.

Roses

When you're old
They rise up
Like your mother and your grandmother Unfolding tenderness
In the points and petals
Forgiving you once again
