The Red Rose

by Roxanne Lea Dubarry


I wrote this romantic poem for anyone who has loved and lost. Their very special person. Hope you enjoyed your Valentine's Day!

The red roses is truly a thing of beauty to behold.

Red is the color of hearts and flowers.

Red is the color of romantic love and heartbreak.

Two lovers embrace under the luminous silvery

moon and star lite nighttime sky. Too quickly the

time has come to bid adieu and for the lovers to have.

One last kiss to last throughout the endless time.

Two hearts joined together are about to break apart.

The time has arrived for the star crossed lovers have come.

They will separate before the rising of the morning's sun.

From this day forth, they must decide their own manifest

destines. They lived in different worlds that were never met

to even meet. She was a modern day debutante. He was a

member of the working class. Their desire cooled very fast.

Love as always,

Roxanne Lea Dubarry
