The Dead Rose

I lay on the table at an acquired angle
I used to once sip the water, sweet
Engulfed in passion like a young couple
I was a tender kiss of your love

Remove my angry thorns
I shall cut you and make you bleed for me
I withered at the sight of your departure
And I sit awaiting your return

I have been pressed into a page like a stamp
Still alone and angled I sit, a lone kiss
Pick me up…
Remember the times that we once had

A gift of passion is glorified
To show you that he cared
And for once in my life, I am confident
I know that you’re still there

I am a dead rose
Come and fill me again with life, like a baby born anew
Be the water, sweet that I need
Take me away from this place

Once filled with vibrant red
And passion for the times
Now I am a just sad shade
Bring me back to life…

Fill this dead rose with the passion of a lover’s kiss
And I will be vibrant and pink once again!
