Love is like the rain on a rose.
It kisses and caresses the flower so it may grow.
Regret not the droplets that eventually slip from the petals, for if they were to linger too long, the flower would drown and cease to thrive.
So let the kisses fall and take nourishment from them.
When it is time to say farewell, do not let sorrow take root.
In time, sunbeams will replace the raindrops, creating a new sensation to live for.
