Love's Wicked Tales

"The Smuggle"

1994

 

You gave yourself to me

Oh beautiful young rose,

But someone said to me

You can't have that wonderful rose.

 

For a time you've waited

As those who've hated,

I've smuggled you

Into my life.

 

First it was through the window

And then you needed water,

A glass, and of course,

A way to fit obscurely into my life.

 

But in my haste

I threw you into water,

It was filled with ice

And I feared your death.

 

Quickly I thought

Of a way to melt that ice,

Which surrounded you 

From all sides.

 

Gingerly, carefully,

And especially cautiously,

I placed you above my lamp.

 

Then I watched,

And waited,

As that ice began

To melt away.

 

It has almost dissipated

Into the air,

As if it

were never there.

 

Soon you will bloom,

And make my life

Full of excitement and happiness,

Once again.

 

When that day comes

My dear sweet wonderful rose,

I will be there to smile

And to laugh with you.

 

We will both share joy

With our lives together,

And your radiant love

Will fill my heart forever.
