The Rose
by Falling  Angel

I am a rose
Standing beautiful and strong 
My leaves reach out to others
My thorns, protection from harm
My petals, soft as a whisper
Starting out but a small bud
Every year growing taller
I hold my heart deep within
Shielding it from the world
Opening more with each touch
Showing myself to the world
Knowing that one day 
My king, with a gentle touch,
Will offer me the rain and sun;
Air and earth.  I need to open
And when I am fully blossomed
The world shall see all of me
Marveling at the love I set free
