My Crystal Rose

Tears blur my eyes Wet my cheeks, fall on paper Cause the ink to run Like a crystal the tear drops Glitter Crystal yes you my dear You rose of optical circumstance Brilliantly changing color at every Glance You light of relaxation giving energy to solemn soul Your petals full in the harmony Of life Your three-dimensional beauty Surpassed only by your love Understanding and friendship Friendship, That immortal bundle of joy We were friends who fell in love We are lovers who are friends What happiness we share How could I shatter you my dear My Crystal-Rose My love my friend Earl S.

Most touching. My favorite line was "You rose of optical circumstance" What would your loves Chair have to say of her? Let me know in the Chair Tales contest! Light & Love Debbie
