A Flower in the Rain


My dear, you are so sweet,
For you grow in a field,
Like a flower with
Beautiful petals,
And a rose that has
Many red spirals
And petals that
Make you all the more unique.

But, my dear, I know
Not whether I will always
See you, for many men
Try to chase you,
And you feel so cold,
As if you were a flower in the rain,
And that the meadow was not large
Enough for you to keep you
Warm and safe.

But, I promise,
That I will be there for you,
No matter the circumstances,
For you are my flower,
And you are my flower in the rain,
For you will grow with every drink you take.

    I like this passage...And you are my flower in the rain,
    For you will grow with every drink you take.

    I like the comparison of a flower being rained upon in a field, and a the social life of a certain woman. Very clever, and skillfully written. (Report) Reply
