What is Friendship

What is friendship
but a fragile flower
born from the earth
it sprouts towards the sun
but does it stand
when the darkness sets.

The colour of the petals
above the thorn
and below the leaf
a bounty of your heart
or red blood drips
a false rose, yet defined
which blooms to grief.

But your fragrance
is the perfect friend
such imperfections
that bend my life to you
this is my friendship
and the beauty of my colours
are for you.
