Receiving The Rose

For some time
The rose has been in its bud
Waiting to blossom into
the world outside

Though if you listened carefully
Its songs could already be heard
As a promise, an answer
to the one for whom it is meant
But it needed some rain
and the sun first

And then the day arrives
That it opens itself to the light
And bursts fully into beauty
Each of its petals is a pearl
That my eyes, my ears,
my heart absorb
The rose and the rose
become one

I receive.
I receive you.
And I am proud of you,
and grateful
For this true gift of love
from your heart
