As twilight began to cast
I saw the shadow upon the rose
It seemed so sad dusk had past
And another day came to a close

I touched the velvet petals so soft
And felt the pain it had bourn
To become the beauty that it was
The struggle it survived to be born

I thought once to pluck and shelter in a vase
Just then my hand it pricked by thorn
Reminding me was not my choice or place
To decide it's final fate

Best left to The Master Gardener
I walked away in humbled state
Leaving it where it grows
A lesson a humbling Rose
