The Rose and the Leaf

The rose said I am blooming
Feeling a bit gloomy inside
The leaf next to her said
I won't leave you ever
I was made for you
And to be with you forever
You are so beautiful my dear Rose
I will protect you and give you
The nourishment that you require
I will stand by you
In your thick and thin
I am bonded to you
For your needs and desires
I fell in love with you
Since you were
From a bud to a rose
You are so fragile
That I love you
From my heart to my soul
I will protect you
When the winds are strong
And love you
When on your petals the rain falls,
And I shall be by your side
When the sun is strong.
I guess the Almighty
Made you for me
To cherish your feelings and beauty
We will live
As long as life is with us
Dear Rose, for when your petals will shed
I, the leaf, will subside and fall with you
We were and are and will be together
Till eternity
and beyond.
