Mother, I remembered
Amongst beautiful pansies and roses she stood,
Picked for her mother the most stunning rose she could.
Her mother would always say the flower had pleased,
That it was the most beautiful rose her eyes would ever meet.
"Darling, thank you for this sweet offering,
Should the next person you give such beauty to be the man you are sure to be your king."
And years later she has kept her promise,
To her king she will offer a rose and a kiss.
Which is why today you are the person who holds my heart,
And I offer you this rose, in hope that never shall we part.
