White Roses - Poem by Brenda D. Priest

You sent me a white rose when we met.
For the white rose stood for a love pure and true.
But the petals of the rose has turned grey and fallen
Like your love for me
So send no more roses send only the thorns,
For that I will understand, I can hold close
To a heart battered and torn,
So send no more roses send only the thorns
My face will no longer glow
My heart will no longer beat for a love long ago
So send no more roses send only the thorns,
For like the rose I have turned grey and fallen,
From a love not true,
Send only the thorns, for white roses are for those
Who still believe,
White roses are for hearts not battered and torn..
