As a rose blossoms, revealing hidden beauty,
So have I blossomed because of your love.
Just when I needed an extra-special friend,
There you were with your smiling face and gentle touch,
Offering the kind of love I'd hungered for.
Now the time has come for you to be moving on,
And I'm wondering what that means for me.
Will you continue to nurture my feelings,
Helping them to grow,
Or will they be left alone to wilt once more?
