You planted and nurtured me

To be the healthiest rose-bush

You’d ever want to sniff, touch, and see

My fragrance sweetens the block

All year around the clock

My petals aren’t bruised or wilted

I am the envy of all who look

Upon my attractiveness


I am a lethal beauty, to be admired from afar

Should you snip away my perfection

Harm will come to you

Why? Because you loved the

Roses..more than you loved me

I am your forever
