The Rose! ! ! Poem by Rati Mehrotra

The Rose! ! !



i saw a rose early morning,

so nice, all bloom in red,

so fresh -just getting up from bed.

The dew drops on it -because of last night rain,

made it gain its beauty all over again.

I smiled and it smiled back, but in pain.

I told 'you are the beauty of this lane'.

It replied 'What you say as dew, are my tears..

last night torrent rain filled me with fears

i thought God wants me to die

i struggled whole night to survive

These tears are to thank God -whom i judged so wrong

For after this rain He made me so strong'

The heavenly fire in which we so badly burn are the ones which make our spirits churn and the mysteries of existence make us learn lovely write indeed....
