I Saw A Rose Today - Poem by Billy Loving

I saw a rose today
In the breeze, it did sway
It's fragrance, so enticing
My heart, delighting

I saw a rose today
Under a sky so dark and gray
With rain droplets, petals filled
Thirst quenched, it's blooming fulfilled

I saw a rose today
Baking in the sun, slowly fading away
Withering, petals turning white
Pink rapidly fading from sight

I saw a rose today
It's petals lying in the clay
Stem so barren and bare
Soon to be gone, never to know it was there

I saw a Rose today
A wreath, at her grave I did lay
My companion so long since gone
My journey through this world, I travel all alone
