A Single Rose

 

A single rose
Ruby red
You give to me

No words spoken
There's no need
For I hear you.

Lovers' eyes smile
Memories
Shared over years

Fingers reach out
Touching me
I come alive

Arms embracing
Hearts melting
We become one

Climbing mountains
Together
Consummation

Drifting homeward
Love still burns
Reality

Lovers' eyes smile
Brightly still
Forty years on
