I gazed out open window and failed to see below,
The beauty of a single rose that in the ground did grow,
I sought a garden in the sky, with magic in its bloom,
Roses of majestic hue, that did the god's allume,
I walked amongst the roses there, and found was colorblind,
For in the magic I had sought, was thorns that I did find,
So I returned to emptiness, no magic in my life,
I failed to see a beauteous rose, and so I lost my wife.

Mike....absolutely beautiful. Why is it people can never see what they had until it is much too late? A sad situation incredibly told....thank you for sharing.

Great work. It is too bad we take so many things for granted.

I'm not an excellent critic, but good poem. I could regret your loss reading it.

We are all blind at one time or another - we fail to see the beauty in a simple loving poem for all the shining, glittering poetry around us. I loved this one...a rose in the garden forum.....

It's nice to see such a short poem with yet so much power and meaning in it....Fabulous work here although I'm near tears ......

I know this must have been hard for you. You did a great job. Wonderful imagery.

It was a surprise ending-unfortunately a very sad surprise. Beautiful job, Mike.
