The Rose Family

The rose is a rose,
And was always a rose.
But the theory now goes
That the apple's a rose,
And the pear is, and so's
The plum, I suppose.
The dear only knows
What will next prove a rose.
You, of course, are a rose -
But were always a rose.

Your poem is absolutely beautiful! My mother died when I was 9. So this poem really touched me, as I can relate. It put the pain I feel, poetic words. Thank you so much! Please write more poems. U truly have a gift for expressing words.
