Like a Rose

Google Images

I gave the gift of an Angel
prayed for it to
watch over
…protect
as I too was given mine
because love gives without
expectation of reward
or return

and,

like a rose, I opened myself up
to grow within its light.

Drink with me to days gone by
for they will never come again
nor should they
Yet,
memories will remain in gold
…untarnished

But on days like these
it’s nice to cup that warmth
Hold it for a while
sipping at the splendor
Life’s richest palate upon the tongue
slip it down
blend it with our inner spectrum
breathe it quietly for a while
revel in its feel
then,
with a sigh of blessed gratitude
give it back unto the world.
