R.O.S.E /Jay P.Narain



R..O..S..E

by: Jay P Narain (Jan.1945 / Bihar, India)


Remember when I would offer you a rose, 
you would consider it as the precious gift of love,
When you would smell the rose and fondly smile,
I would be intoxicated with the sweet fragrance of your love.

On those dreary winter days when you would be away,
my heart would be lonely with the misery of separation,
I would feel the like rose bushes stranded in snow,
where all the leaves were parting one by one.

Somewhere in the tenderness and softness of the rose petals,
lies my delicate and innocent love,
sometimes the thorns pick and hurt,
sometime love is full of fear, sometimes it hurts.

Everlasting beauty of the rose remains in my heart,
even when the rose blossoms, fades and withers,
My love is immortal like rose,
which never dies in the heart as I love you so much.

Song of the Rose - Sappho



Song of the Rose

by: Sappho


If Zeus chose us a King of the flowers in his mirth, 
He would call to the rose, and would royally crown it;
For the rose, ho, the rose! is the grace of the earth,
Is the light of the plants that are growing upon it!
For the rose, ho, the rose! is the eye of the flowers,
Is the blush of the meadows that feel themselves fair,
Is the lightning of beauty that strikes through the bowers
On pale lovers that sit in the glow unaware.
Ho, the rose breathes of love! ho, the rose lifts the cup
To the red lips of Cypris invoked for a guest!
Ho, the rose having curled its sweet leaves for the world
Takes delight in the motion its petals keep up,
As they laugh to the wind as it laughs from the west.

Everlasting rose - ryan castro



Everlasting Rose

by: ryan castro


a rose is often used to show
your affectionate feelings to
someone special.

The 'r' in the word represents
The radiant beauty of a rose.
For no flow can compare.
For you are like a rose filled with passion
And are truly one of a kind.

The 'o' represents the overwhelming
depths of color of each petal of
the rose. It's like the outstanding
depths of color that spark in
your beautiful eyes.

The 's' represents the Softness
of each petal of the rose.
For your lips are like the
petalsof a rose, soft and sweet
to each kiss.

The 'e' represents the everlasting
beauty of the rose, for the rose
soon fades and dies.

But the everlasting beauty of it
stays in the eye of your mind forever
for you are like my rose.
For your beauty is everlasting
neither fades nor dies in the
eyes of the one that cares for you.

A Rose Can Say - Anthony Smith



What a Rose Can Say

by: Anthony Smith


A rose can say I love you
And want you to be mine,
a rose can say I thank you
For being so very kind,

A rose can say congratulations,
Whatever the occasion may be,
a rose can say I miss you
And wish you were here with me,

A rose can say I'm sorry
If I've hurt you in any way,
a rose can say get well soon,
May God bless you today?

A rose can say I wish you happiness,
And the best for you each day.
A rose can say farewell
When someone goes away,

A rose can say hello,
I'm thinking of you today,
there are just so many wonderful things
That a rose can say,

A rose can say goodbye
When a love one is laid to rest,
No matter what there is to say,
A rose can say it best.
