Crimson petals so velvety sweet
Reminds me of the day we were to meet
Red silk and white satin ripples in wine
Breathless thoughts now a whisper in time
Warm was the air around the gleaming golden box
A note written with a careful hand left by the clever fox
Smooth cool paper held in hand prompts a smile, a tear and a heart beat gone wild.
There were no words to speak only a feeling so strong
That the memories never fade even as its been so long.
Long thick and thorned is a stem still green
In the satin filled box lies the rose in between
A rose that's been cut but still lives true
Its the rose that love gave and that love is you.
