A Rose For Winter

I became a rose for winter
Blooming below a midnight sky
All year long my body has strived
Who shall care for me
If I were to die

Curled up
My leaves fold and cower
Embracing the life left within
Feebly I watch the sun
Out it comes
Without reply

I become
A rose for winter
Tread carefully the path
Don't kill a rose
Before it has the grace to die..
