The Forgotten Rose

I stare off into the distance.
Waiting for my gardener,
for I've budded in the wrong place.
I try to focus on the sky,
and the sun that shines.
But I start to cry
at the sight of a cloud
that matches your face.
I wonder if you've forgotten
or if you even realize.
The seed you planted
had drifted away.
The meadow around me
is so unfamiliar.
No one seems to know my name.
The trees,
I swear they laugh at me.
Knowing my heartache
as the leaves echo the same.
I am a lone rose
of the highest quality,
but noone cares.
Not even the rain.
It trickles down the coming foilage.
Snickering at my shame.
Even the butterflies
care not to visit.
My pollen,
the bees do not graze.
So I wave in the wind
in hope.
Offering welcome
to you friend.
Remember me, yet?
Look upon your garden again.
See within your grain.
That your precious rose
is missing.
Lost within the land.
