They say every rose has its thorn,

But you have many.

While you withstand most,

When things dip below sustainable,

You fall off.

But not for long,

Seeing as you are hardy perennials.

You’re always showing up to prove your beauty in this world, shedding light on my barren soul.

My hats off to you for surviving the high and low temperatures this world brings, and offering more peace than you know.
