Oh Rose - Poem by Elbert Matt Loubser

Tell me of your tales of heartbreak
You have seen these people bleed
From hearts and veins alike
Their beings spilled from within
That they are emptied;
In eyes and in soul

Oh gentle one

Tell me of the rare cold truths
Like tempests they are revealed
And split right through
Breaking walls and valleys alike
That the heart becomes burdened
By unshakable realities

Oh caring one

Tell me of your valleys and walls
And how the fractures reveal
Only peace and beauty and love
That even the darkest places within
Have long since been replenished
By grace and by undying light

Oh graceful one

Tell me of those new truths
Which lay heavily as monoliths upon your valleys
And disturb the serenity
Standing steadfast as mountains
And seeming unshakable, yet frail

Oh loving one

Let me hear how these mountains crumble
By your valleys
By the valley's Light
By another valley, oh may it be mine
To break through these burdens
And leave them to dust
That no valley within lies disturbed
But perfectly serene

Oh beautiful one

Tell me these tails
That I may take you into my arms
And know that my own valleys
Have felt much the same
Have known these trials

Oh majestic one

And even these truths which I do not bear the same as you
May their weights be lifted from you
And unto me

Oh free one

For my valleys would cherish
Anything from yours

Know that my valleys
Live to hear your tales
Of heartbreak
Of love
To hold you close

Let not your valleys face the darkness alone, oh rose
