On one of these nights, the moon (who had seen her longings for many a long night) spoke to her and said, ""You must be so tired of waiting - would it not be easier for you to just give up?""
""Oh yes, I am so tired and so lonely,"" said the Rose, ""but I will keep trying and trying.""
The moon laughed in an unpleasant way and said, ""Why bother?""
And the rose answered, ""Because if I don't remain open, I will simply fade away.""
