A Single Rose

A single rose is all that stands
As the world crumbles away
Held in outstretched hand
Eyes fixed firmly on you

At this point in time
The world narrows to two
All the memorized lines
Are lost in your gaze

"For a beautiful lady like you,
A rose is, uh, I mean..."
The words cease but are still true
For your beauty shines forth

The words fail as words will do
But the rose is taken by soft hands
You smile at me and I at you
A gentle touch causes shiver

The world slowly returns in beauty and light
Words trip over my tongue
As I ask you if you might
Like to join me for a while
The answer is yes
