O Candle- Rose! - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

O Candle-Rose of rosy hue!
- A gift from sweet a heart;
On Christmas Day to me anew,
Aflame, how do I start?

For, if when lit, your love will glow
And burn my very heart;
And melt the wax forever, Oh!
The Rose could then depart.

O Candle-Rose of beauty great
- A piece of lovely art;
Tho’ burn you must, some day by fate:
How can I do that part?

O Candle- Rose of priceless rate,
Oh, be my living art;
Just like you were to me till date,
Remain my dear sweetheart.

    The lovely christmas gift from a lovely student lies brand new in its box.I never mustered the courage to light it as the beauty would melt away and be gone! and so, this poem was made and given to the same person on her birthday!
    thanks sandra and david.
