Rose in a Vase

I saw a rose
In a small glass vase
It looked so fragile and helpless
But yet beautiful and sublime.

Could I touch its petals
Without causing the harm
that would damage
this wonderful thing?

Could I breathe onto
its fine leaves
And leave no sign of human interference?
Let it live on in its own peace?

My lovely lonesome rose
Do not abandon me
But transport me into your bloom
And let me rest there for all eternity.
