Rooted in my life is a rare rose,
that bloomed year’s ago.
Through agony and pain
it grew into a perfumed memory.
I learned how to grow alongside it’s bed, hydrating both
with my persistent passion for thriving.
I became more than a perfumed memory, lingering on your nose.
I became a system, as well as
your stone foundation.
Your future endeavors
are rooted in my bed,
giving you guidance and structure
so you can build your life
with stability and strength.
I also give meaning to your life.
