If you enjoy the fragrance of a rose, you must accept the thorns which it bears- Isaac Hayes

“Love is like the wild rose-briar; Friendship like the holly-tree. The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms, but which will bloom most constantly?” ― Emily Brontë, The Complete Poems

“It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important.”
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Many waters cannot quench love nor can floods drown it if a man would give for love all the wealth of his house it would be utterly despised -Songs of Solomon 8: 7


(for ayo)

you are the rose
in the garden.
the fragrant flower of the day.

the rose
in the bouquet.

the rose of love.

you are my rose.

my everlasting rose

you are the rose

the symbol of love,

lovers’ exchange.

you are my rose


you are a rose


roses do have thorns
roses do grow late
roses demand more time

roses demand more patience and care.

you are my rose
yes, you are my rose


i must be patient
i must care and tend you


i must give you time and
i must wait for you
