Treasure Island

Like A Rose


She wears a fragrance so refreshing
Her gentle countenance sparks a light;
Beauty clasps her skin like a fleshing
Her allure, no one dares fight.

Whenever she smiles, a merry band plays,
And if I say, she signals it stale;
So much I've heard their replays
Still my words bear a tale.

Thus, I treat her like a rose
Cos' she sees not the beauty I behold;
If I write a poem or prose,
The truth I have yet untold.
