The rose

She is a rose
A red rose!
She is fragrant
And fragile
She is sophisticated
She is fine!

Seeing her cheers me up!
Her smile, her warmth, her generous heart!
She is a beautiful red rose
Delicate, yet bold and sublime!

But be careful
She has thorns
To protect herself
From danger and harm
You need to hold her just so
You need to be gentle and kind

And if you do
She brightens your world
My friend, Lupita, the red rose!
