Worth waiting for

A gentle rose
Waits for you
Your touch, your caress
Your gentle care

Its scent intoxicates
Throws me off balance
Just like you do

It asks to be placed
In your hair so silken
It begs to adorn
Your radiant beauty

The rose is simple;
It wants to fulfill
Its purpose in life
To be an object of beauty

But it cannot wait longer
For it will die;
It simply cannot live
Staying away from you so long

But I believe, against hope
It would live till you came back
Because I know for a fact
You’re worth waiting for.
