Beloved: A Rose Waiting in the Bud

Beloved: A Rose Waiting in the Bud

Some start off in life without kin to cheer their dreams,

their victories are even more heroic than

those who come from a space of comfort

you who held the candle for me in the darkness

May I do the same for you, Beloved?

I am only a few steps in front of you on the road.

your songs and words are neither mute nor amateur

in darker days they were the source of smiles and comfort

heart holds answers that formula or medicine cannot

we are both impermanent and eternal

it’s a riddle to most what is really so simple

you lovingly tended my soil amidst its reeking stench

may I nourish your own as I can see a bud

that hides the most fragrant and beautiful rose within
