"whats past is prologue" - shakespeare


I gaze at this rose
Blinking away tears
I close my eyes
My singing hides my fears

I feel the stem
My hands cautious for thorns
I skim the petals
Not wanting them torn

I think of you
As I renew my view
And I see the velvet color
And, Lord, I feel it too

You broke my heart
So velvet smooth
I didn't realize
Until I finally stopped crying out for you

Now petals will fall away
As your love did too
And I might cry
As I pick them up
And remember you
