In the wings of love

How long can love’s sweet rose lay in the wings,
quiescent, waiting for that tender cue
to open up her heart, dissolve all strings,
before she withers, dulled from absent dew?

In yearning for the warmth that closeness brings
to blush her skin with hints of crimson hue,
how long can love’s sweet rose lay in the wings,
quiescent, waiting for that tender cue?

From shaded canopy her essence sings
in soft soliloquy, songs to imbue 
the soul who claims he longs to hold her true,
yet to familiar paths his heart still clings.
How long can love’s sweet rose lay in the wings?

    This really moves me, Sharon. I have been feeling like a faded rose waiting in the wings for years. I can identify with the motions in this eloquently penned rhyme. I am traveling until next weekend, but wanted to stop by quickly. So glad I came across this beautiful poem! Love, Carolyn (for my favorites, of course)
