Forsake me not, for I would pine 
and waste, like tendrils on the vine 
that shrivel when the rains abscond 
and nullify our special bond. 

For eglantine shall flourish not 
when kept in shade, stilled in the pod, 
nor will our love, without the spark 
of nature, and the love of God. 

Remain here, nestled in my care, 
and feel the measure of His power, 
with nourishment for heart and soul, 
as the elements sustain the flower.

    Hi Keith - A rose is a rose and a poem by Keith is a poem by Keith. I'm not sure what the previous observation means but it's good. You are the master once more at perfect rhyme and truthful heart. Love you and hope you are well. I'm recovering (nicely) from a knee replacement.
