Rose for my Rose

The warmth of colour

And the wafting scent

Fills my nostrils and

Tantalises my senses

Triggering vivid memories

Of by gone days

Days filled with love

With sunshine, with laughter

That broad smile and deep cleft of the chin

Underneath that wide breamed hat

The warmth and depth of those

Deep brown eyes

that told a story of times

Spanning a life time and beyond

Giving the guidance and wisdom

That drives me to this very day
