Rosy Tears

Rose Tears

Watch that flower as it grows
Watch as it becomes: the rose.
Touch its petals: silken smooth.
Watch its leaves rustle and move.
Smell its scent: so sweet and fair –
Aromatic, fragrant air!

But to pick one – give me heed:
Oft it causes you to bleed.
All important things in life
Cost: exertion, effort, strife.
Joys – like picking the rosebud
Cost you. Often your own blood.
