||What a coincidence about the rose-I was just reading "The Little Prince" by Antoine De Saint-Exupery in which he writes, "It is the time youhave wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important...Men have forgotten this truth, but you must not forget it. You become responsible,forever,for what you have tamed. You are responsible for your rose..."
Which goes back to what Tom Waits sings...."I love you baby and I always will.since I put your picture in a frame" Once you`ve "put something in a frame", it`s yours for life, whatever happens.
That`s true not just for people, but also for places,things,feelings.....
