I had a dream
A precious dream
To treasure always.

I was walking
Simply walking
In a field of scarlet red.

With each step
Each faltering step
The sensuous perfume arose.

A thousand and one roses
Surrounded by red roses
I walked on.

Each bloom
Lovely as the next
All gleaming in the moonlight.

Deeper I walked
Till all around me
Was a sea of flaming ruby.

I wanted to skip
Like a small child
Discovering how to play.

I strolled on
To the centre
Of the waves.

There in the centre
Of the field of scarlet roses
Was a bloom of different colour.

Stooping carefully
I plucked it from the ground
Feeling it’s velvet petals caress my skin.

I wanted to drown
In it’s intoxicating scent
So rich that scarce could I breath.

The heavy fragrance
Hung in the midnight air
As I lay in the field of sanguine.

I studied the perfect bloom
Clutched between my fingers
It’s rich crimson petals, the perfection of nature.

As if intoxicated by its smell
I began to feel drowsy
My eyelids became too heavy.

Just as I was drifting off
I swear I heard a murmur
From the rose within my grasp.

'My love’ it said
‘Sleep well
My Gypsy Princess’.

With those words
I fell into a deep sleep
With the perfect rose,
The symbol of his eternal love.
