A TEAR DROP ON THE ROSE
A teardrop fell upon the rose
That she held close to her breast.
In sympathy, the petals closed,
As she saw her love at rest.
The rose it seemed to feel her pain
As one by one her petals fell
And upon the stem of thorns,
Now fell the pouring rain.
Bending down, she picked the petals
And to herself, she drew them near;
She saw, in the rose, her broken heart
And on the petal, her fallen tear.
Between the pages of a book
She placed the petals tenderly.
And the rose, it shed a tear,
As if it cried in sympathy.
The words on the pages read,
Forever, my love, remember me
And when you see a rose of red,
Remember, love, to remember me. Current Mood: depressed
