A Rose. - Poem by Cecilia Parkin
I planted a rose for you today
Amidst grassy surround - in rich red clay.
I wonder where your body lies? ,
If there, someone cares tender and kind.
I loved you - Oh so long ago,
You loved me too you told me so.
But then came ambition, you went away.
We'd both hoped for our wedding day.
The time went on, your goal not won,
Soon, soon you said, back home you'd come.
But days and months went into years.
My laughter dried so did my tears.
I changed my life, got wealth and fame,
A different world - but kept my name.
Then one day your letter came -
I replied with haste - 'nothings the same'.
A few days ago I learned you'd died
Buried o'er there in foreign soil.
So I plant a rose onto my past -
My very first love, whom I loved and lost.
