If Only

I wish

You were a rose.

A half blossomed, dew kissed, silky red rose.

From the corner window of my house,

I would’ve admired you smiling in my garden.

A little look at you would’ve made my day.

Would’ve showered all my affections on you,

Caressed you, kissed you and adored you all my life.

And

When it was your turn to wither away,

Would’ve carefully gathered your soft petals,

And kept them to my heart till death.

If only…

You were a rose.
