Hard-Pressed to Not Forget

Why would a delivery truck be pulling into his driveway, so late in the day? And a florist truck at that. No one had ever sent him anything before…much less flowers; but there the girl was, walking up to his front door, knocking softly…so softly it would have never been heard, had it not been that he was only inches away on the other side of it. He backed away, opened the door, and she handed him a single wild rose. He at first said the rose could not be for him, but the girl insisted that the wild rose was to him. Him, one who knew so little about what to do with a rose; especially a wild one…Rose…how long had it been? Not long enough to forget, for that would require a lifetime. Not long enough for her scent to be missing from the memory of her in his arms. Not long enough for him to forgive himself for trying to tame a wild Rose. A Rose he had continued to press the petals of, between the pages of his life.
