 Reflections of My Heart

The First Rose of Summer  ღ KKD ღ

The First Rose Of Summer


This is my time to bask in the sun
To renew my senses.
To return to the ocean's shore
For that is where my sanity lies.
It is there I gain my strength.

With the first rose of summer
The hope of love is once again reborn
The aroma drifts through the air
And carresses my soul
as a gentle summers breeze

With the first rose of summer
I will awaken to new possibilities
I pray for a change from the dark
of winter that has lasted to long

I will remain open and free
cautious and careful
but never give up hope.
My eyes shall not blink
My heart shall not close
For my time shall come
Just like that First Summer Rose.
