A Rose by no Other Name

If roses could talk

Would you see what they  do

Reflections on sunlight

The beauty in you.
Would your roots show a strength 

Would your stem stand straight and long

Would your soft-felt petals

Sing a beautiful song.
A rose hears your thoughts

It bares all your tears

Yet it sees nothing but beauty

For  the past several years.
Written by my feelings, 

Terry Shepherd
