Poem: The Rose

(My grandmother just passed away. I’m going to post a few poems dedicated to her and her passing. This one was for her birthday many years ago.)

The Rose

As sweet as honeysuckle
yet not as tasty
as colorful as a rainbow
but without all the shades
as precious as a young child
yet it doesn’t last as long
a rose may have many qualities
but not as many as you
