Friendship & Roses

True friendship is a fragile thing.... like roses on the vine;
Where the budding flowers take time to mature,
Both will need the right tending,
And neither one should be taken for granted or both will surely die,
There's beauty in the sweet blossoms;
When their delicate petals unfold,
To leave behind a rare fragrance in the giving,
Still one must maintain some constant love & care;
While being watchful not to disturb the thorns hidden there,
For once pierced it will surely leave one's soul to bleed,
But if both are nurtured with much love & affection,
Then the heart's desire will be fulfilled in that sharing.
