Velvet Petals of Lace

To appreciate a rose, you hold her with your heart.
To appreciate the rose, you love her every part.

The deepness of the green in her pointed leaves.
The sheer sharpness of her many thorns.
The sturdiness of her ridged stem standing straight
Every petal made of deep, red, delicate, lace.
The fragrance of her that surrounds you,
That engulfs your every sense.
The want, to look at her, to smell her,
To feel her delicate petals against your face.
To see the dew beading on her skin.

To love a rose, to appreciate a rose,
You must love her every part.
To love a rose, to appreciate a rose,
You must hold her with your heart.

Such a beautiful touch you've brought to these lines.
