Once I was a Rose

29 Mar

You see me now as a single rose
Once I belonged to a bunch
You see me now still vibrant, indeed
Once I would have been
and would have been for longer, and longer still
You see me now so upstanding, yet
Once I had a crown
You see me now as just a flower, although
Once I was weighted by an anchor
You see me beautiful for a while, then all at
Once forgotten
