About the Poem

Losing a love is very painful. This poem is about the beauty of love and the pain of its loss.

Like A Rose

Like a rose,
Love is beautiful
When it is alive.

Filling the air
With a sweet fragrance,
As it spreads its petals.

But when it dies,
It dries,
Becoming brittle,
Eventually turning black
And falling apart.

This poem that Di wrote is totally true. Many people say, "Love is like a rose," but now that I think of it, a rose does die, so, it makes sense after all! Good job Di!
