The Delicate Rose

Once many years ago
A boy, I liked gave me
This one delicate rose
Although he just liked me
As a friend, he thought it good
To give such a gift
And it was. I learned much
From that rose gift
Of courage to be a friend
Of beauty and of caring
Of letting go of my whims
For the sake of something greater
Time has passed and we departed
On our separate ways
But no doubt, I still think of him
Now and again, the noble rose
He gave me and the humble heart
I learned to keep
Friendships have meant much to me
Grateful for each of them
The gifts we give go beyond words
