Celebrating Your Love with Roses

Rose - Poetry

Celebrate Your Love with Roses

The grace of your beauty is such an appeal,

Without your love, I never want to be,

For you have opened my eyes and made me see,

There is nothing as precious as having you near,

Forever I’ll hold your and cherish you dear,

I always see your smile, and the moment we made… Continue reading “Celebrating Your Love with Roses”

Like refreshing raindrops, from heaven above,
Forever, we’ll remain, a new beginning,
Our love unfailing, and never-ending… Continue reading “Declaring Your Love Daffodils”
