Have you ever loved a rose,

and watched her slowly bloom;

and as her petals would unfold,

you grew drunk on her perfume.

Have you seen her dance,

her leaves all wet with dew;

and quivered with a new romance–

the wind, he loved her too.

Have you ever longer for her,

on nights that go on and on;

for now, her face is all a blur,

like a memory kept too long.

Have you ever loved a rose,

and bled against her thorns;

and swear each night to let her go,

then love her more by dawn.

–Lang Leav

  1. I had loved a rose. Beautiful, calming and fragrant one. It’s thorn didn’t hurt till I left the street but once the pain hit me, I just couldn’t smell anything else.
    Beautiful one!!

    1. Hey! I am glad you liked this poem, Lang Leav is a wonderful writer. Although, this poem, this rose was a reference to a classic character from children’s book called “The Little Prince”. I also have the references of this book on my front page, you should check it out! It’s one of the greatest book I have ever read! In case you get a chance to read it, let me know what you think about it!

      I know the story is a bit complex and hard to understand but it’s so unique from usual classics! don’t you think? there’s also a movie based on this story on netflix, check it out if you get a chance! it has a brilliant soundtrack

        If you google the e-book pops up for download. Easily readable on tablet. Sympathies. I didn’t find it complicated but it had layers metaphor kind of thing when it comes to different people he visits the money minded busy businessman reflected in the person counting stars, highlighting the uselessness of running after money or stars but otherwise it was a good read. I do have Netflix but the book is sufficient.
