A rose for you

As I drift along on the wings of a mist
I see you below – awaiting the love you missed.
Though rich I am not, that’s why
Diamonds for you I can’t buy.

Thus, I offer a rose just for you
Pink, yellow & red - of all hues
Any colour that you may deem fit
Shred it into petals or preserve it.

It’s your choice
I can only voice
That this is my heart I can offer
Neither a treasure chest nor a coffer.

But then do remember
Henceforth each step that you take
Walking towards your goal
You walk over my petals, nay - my soul.

I only hope it is not consigned to be buried in your book
To dry, wither away & years later when you do look.

You reminisce this moment’s unrequited love & feel a twinge…
Wonder about my whereabouts and fate…
A rose reciprocated then, may make you cringe,
Since by then, to seek me it’ll be too late…
On the wings of the mist I would have floated far away.

    @Adeline. On the outset ma'am, as a tribute to your own abilities, may I offer a Rose to you: -)
    I must say you are a very keen observer about the break up of the stanzas. Four/five or six lines in a stanza, I 've used when in continuum I wish to highlight a particular thought process. A breather thereafter to be able to absorb what's been written. At times the two liners are used as highlighters to stress upon a particular thought (instead of italics) . I do agree that it is unconventional, but that's the way my thinking process goes. It is not by default but intentional: -)

    Ah! The rose you describe would seem to be the Peace Rose. A lovely rose indeed to present to a loved one. Your style of poem is intriguing. I have noticed that you use the form more than once: 4 four line stanzas, a two line stanza and a five. I am curious as to where this form came to your attention.
