Song of a Rose
Amidst the smog of london's streets,
A song no man could ever compose,
The notes emerge from a delicate rose.
Nothing around could compete.
Floating in the air, the lullaby rests,
Above and around those who sleep.
Sunshine all day but in their dreams, they weep;
Birds that do not sing but die in their nests.
But the rose, to the world opens its heart,
And feels the sun's kiss deep inside.
Though light comes to and fro as the tide,
It always opens even when petals start,
To peel away from the times gone by.
It stands tall with glory when the night is done,
Without fail, it rises to meet the sun,
Though few admire and more pass by.
