'Bouquet of Flowers'


“Bouquet of Flowers”

The bouquet of flowers
assume a lone place on the table,
bright, yellow and pink daisies
with just the perfect amount of greenery.
The vase is special.
Elongated, heart-shaped, elegant.
The sun shines through the crystal glass
and mingles with the stems set in water,
magnified illusions of what?
Love? Adoration? Romance?
The card lay beside the fresh bouquet,
Tear-stained words,
faded- yet still legible-
“Amazing Flowers… for an AmazingGrl…I Adore You! ”
Your heart skips a beat
every time you pass by them,
for they are the most beautiful flowers anyone has ever given you-
Actually, the only flowers.
And though not very often, it’s your own tears
that stain the words on the card-
It is the most special gift, from a special man.
And you wish they’d last forever…

Like your love.
