Frozen Rose

Snow litters the ground
And unappreciated

The frost falls upon
A lonely rose
Sitting in a field
And unnoticed

The tiny ice crystals
Cling to the delicate petals
The way love
Clings to the heart

I see it there
And I think of you
I think of your laugh
Of your smile

You light up my world
My life
Without you I'm incomplete
Like a rose
Hidden in winter
That never blooms

Then the snow
And then the frost
Finally melted away
Revealing sunshine
As warm as you

The clouds went away

And the rose began to bloom
