“The dead rose” is a sad dress.
All beauty that we can see now is defective. Due to the Fall made by Adam, and in him all of us – his descendants, all nature round us and people bear the traces of death and decomposition. The most beautiful rose will fade away as well as the best person will die. We are created not for this world, our soul searches for an eternal love and beauty and only in Christ do we find something that will never be lost.
