First Love

A new beginning emerges.

Someone unique enters life;

A seed plummets the earth.

A rosebud breaks in the clearing;

A fresh start with someone special.

The rose grows, fed with constant water and sunshine.

Relationship builds, maturing with each passing day.

Finally, the rose is full bloom.

A big smile on your face.

The sweet aroma of love and the words breakthrough, "I love you."

Life is surreal and the rose grows strong.

Suddenly, disaster strikes the heart.

The scent weakens.

The cycle of a flower never last forever.

Thorns prick painfully.

A quick stab in the heart.

Rosy petals slowly wither.

Love is lost.

Petals gently fall with the gust of the wind to be forever gone.
