I gave a rose

I gave a rose

Tags: love, rose
A man gives his love a rose
I gave a rose to my love
Brightest red and free of thorns
On our first date to celebrate
Upon her beauty it did adorn.

I gave two roses to my love
On that day she answered “Yes”
Small token for lives ahead
And on this day I felt blessed.

I gave three roses to my love
On the day we finally wed
Fiery red hued blossoms three
For tonight we shared a bed.

I gave four roses to my love
This date I wanted to show
Our first year as man and wife
Her beauty beyond their glow.

No more roses please she said
They're pretty, I know your heart
I have you forever and more
Our love shall never depart.

I gave no roses to my love
The years just sped past us by
Our love for one another grew
Time went on and seemed to fly.

I gave a rose to my love
Brightest red and free of thorns
She laid in a final sleep
Upon her beauty it did adorn.
