The Watcher of the Rose

He sat by as your rose bloomed
He watched as your tears leaked
He cried as your petals were plucked
He wished he could go to you
He dreamt of being with you
He wanted to comfort you
He needed to gain courage
He had to save you

He was too late
Another gardener pulled you up
Your petals sparkled with dew
The gardener admired your beauty
You thought it was true
The gardener ravaged your beauty
Yet again your petals were torn

He stood by and thought
He waited until you were gone
The gardener now lays in the dirt
His anger brought him too far
He wont face you
He will only watch
He follows you only to take the torment away
He keeps the gardeners at bay
