Rose

I walked upon a single rose as she began to die.

She looked at me with complete sadness and started with a why.

Why what… I said to her, confusion in my eye.

Why must I be surrounded by only things that die?

I stumbled upon my response, caught totally by surprise.

Because you are the beauty. The beauty before our eyes.

She smiled at my words as she began to fall.

I watched as she disappeared and left her shadow standing tall.
