The rose by Isselinai The rose by Isselinai

Listen: [link]
For those who lose faith & hope too soon.

Something small for someone special...


"Some say love, it is a river
That drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love, it is a hunger
An endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower
And you, its only seed

It's the heart, afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance
It's the dream, afraid of waking
That never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
Who cannot seem to give
And the soul, afraid of dying
That never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long
And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed
That with the sun's love, in the spring
Becomes the rose"

Did you write the poem?
It is beautiful...

Could I use the photo & the poem on a memorial page for my friend that died last year?

wow...
I love the parched
dark feel to it
brings out the rose in a weird strange way
sort of reminds me of the rose in Pan's Labyrinth
o.O

I used this picture to accompany a poem I wrote on my blog [link]
I hope you don't mind
I linked back and credited you ofcourse

If you want it removed simply email me on st.fallen@rock.lk and I will remove it immediately

Mam coś opartego na podobnej koncepcji i chociaż wykonanie i technika inne, to będzie mi trochę głupio wstawić ;)
