Are you referring to the poem “A Red, Red Rose” by Robert Burns?  The rose he refers to in the poem is a metaphor for his love.  He compares his love for his “bonnie lass” to the newly bloomed flower as well as to a “melodie/That’s sweetly played in tune.”  The implication is that his love is beautiful, new, and sweet.Burns also uses figurative language, or figures of speech, to describe how long his will love the girl.  He says he will love her until the seas dry up, rocks melt in the sun, and all the sands of time run out.  Meaning, of course, that he will love her forever.
