a rose

There is only one rose

 

 
I caught my eye on a crimson, red rose.
Out of them you stood out as one.
Her delicate, beauty stands out.
Her grey eyes focused by red,rimmed glasses seized my attention.
A fallen angel graced by heaven's, delicate touch.
I am compelled and drawn to this soft, spoken girl.
 
For it is this gorgeous girl,
That has the delicate loveliness of a rose.
Every quiet word, my heart she graced with her touch.
I long to spend a single moment, just one.
How can I get her attention?
Will I be struck out?
 
A leap of faith to take her out.
A sunny day to spend with this girl.
Our whimsical antics have everyones attention.
How we stuck out in a field of boring, weeds like a vibrant, rose.
Tis too soon to say she is the one.
I lead her through the crowded mall, hand in hand an excuse just to touch.
 
Her soft, fair skin a pleasant to touch.
Where will the winds take us on our day out?
A candle lit dinner at five hours past one?
It matters not! I will adventure everywhere with this girl.
A walk through the downtown lights, affection in the air rose.
Our random conversations "if you don't have ADD you're not paying attention"
 
With every word I am engrossed, focusing my attention.
She traces  shapes on my hand with a shy touch.
She tells me tales of her past mistakes I tell her "there are thorns on every rose."
I pour out my feelings "that's it the cat's out!"
The feelings of how I feel about this girl.
By my side I want her to be the one.
 
The day's end we are one.
I have her attention.
I move in closer,  and kiss this girl.
"Call that a kiss?" Just a peck or a touch.
The fun we had on our day out.
I leave her with a single red rose.
 
She rose and stood out as one.
Out of the blue she caught my attention.
To again feel the touch of this wonderful girl.

ONCE UPON A ROSE

ES WAR EINMAL EINE ROSE

Once upon a rose
gepflanzt wurde
ein Gitter so devine
hielt dieses Herz von mir.

Eine Laube oh so sicher
den sie sich klammern konnte
Leben war sublime
Es war einmal.

Ihre Blütenblätter begann sich zu öffnen
enthüllt all ihrer Schönheit
wie eine schöne Frau
verehrt, stand sie hoch.

Eines Tages kam ein Fremder kam
wünscht für seinen Garten
Kommissionierung auf ihre Blütenblätter
die Blume seines Herzens.

Einer nach dem anderen fiel
Verlassen ihres Herzens nackt
traurig und allein
Rückkehr in ihre Heimat.

Eine Laube oh so sicher
den sie sich klammern konnte
Leben war so erhaben
Es war einmal.

ONCE UPON A ROSE

ÉRASE UNA ROSA

Érase una rosa
se plantó
un enrejado tan devine
celebrará este corazón mío.

Un cenador oh tan seguro
uno podía aferrarse a
la vida era sublime
érase una vez.

Sus pétalos comenzaron a abrir
revela toda su belleza
una dama encantadora
adorado, se mantuvo de pie.

Un día llegó un extraño
deseando para su jardín
recogiendo en sus pétalos
la flor de su corazón.

Uno a uno se cayó
dejando su corazón desnudo
triste y sola
regresar a su casa.

Un cenador oh tan seguro
uno podía aferrarse a
la vida era tan sublime
érase una vez.
