Red Ink

I wrote a letter today
Better than yesterday
Expressing my love to you
In the best way I knew

Written in red
All that was said
as the pain in my heart
dripped in red ink

Color of my heart
red ink so dark
color of the rose
I gave to you

Color of my tears
The blood that smears
From my soul
On the imprint of my heart

Lips red too
The letter so blue
But red Ink knew
How much I love you.

Rose in the Snow

A flower is born
Under a snowy morn
Its petals froze
Was a lovely rose

Covered in white
All night
Shone like a star
Escaping afar

Seem to survive
The frozen cold nights
Stood alone
Turned stone

She only knew
That life is blue
But if your strong
You’ll make it through..

People visited where the rose
Stood alone
Chatting how
The rose kept its home…
