Rose

It remains alone
It’s friends gone
Taken away
Or withered into nothingness

It’s red satin pedals
Fall
Out of it’s reach
Gone forever

People walk by
Talking unaware of
The last rose
Falling into darkness

As the world grows dark
Cold
The rose listens
To the lullaby of silence

Lulling the rose
Into its final eternity
A peaceful ending
To a peaceful life

The rose watches the final
Pedals fall
Resting delicately on the counter
As the rose slips into the abyss
