NaPoWriMo #15: Still Lovely is the Dying Rose

Still lovely is the dying rose.
Old petals grow a deeper red.
Grandma, face stilled by sleep's repose,
Lies cat-like curled upon her bed.

--April 15, 2013

Prompt: A Pantun, a Malay poem with four lines, abab rhyme scheme, and 8-12 syllables per rhyme.  The first two lines and the second two lines should not have a logical, straight-forward connection.
