Poem – The Thorns


Rose Among the Thorns


Midnight sun breaks through the night
Your beautiful face my only sight
Our nights together living apart
So much to say but where to start

Every time Ive lived with love
Seems I touch each thorn along the rose
Can I pick myself up off the floor
Walk away from the open door

The lights go out the day it ends
My mind races and this whole world spins
Holding onto dreams facing days alone
Counting each hour until I’m home
