The Rose - Poem by Monica Jones

A single bud in a sheaf of green,
The most beautiful flower I've ever seen.
A message of friendship, a strengthening bond.
A quiet courage in the velvet petals, her silent song.
When its life has drained away
I will hold the memory.
As we make the journey along this road.
The way will be lightened by this single rose.
