If all could offer you
Was this rose to show how
Much I feel for you.
I am willing.

If all I could offer you
Was to hold you in times
Of comforting.
I am willing.

If all I could offer you
Was my shoulder
To cry your tears on.
I am willing.

If all I could offer you
Was my growing
Love for you.
I am willing.

If all I could offer you
Was to take your
Place on death's bed.
I am willing.

If all I could offer you
Was this rose to show how
Much I feel for you.
Are you willing?

Whoa.....where do I sing up?
This is indeed a beautiful and touching piece of poetry. Very simplistic in it's language and style, but oh so well written. It speaks volumes in very few words. Thank you for posting
