I know, why is this about roses? Well, for me, roses are the most romantic things in the world. They symbolize love,
peace and many other things. Their petals are as smooth as a baby's skin and can be boiled and strained and can really
cool you off when applied. Their thorns, though painful have their own meaning. Beauty can never be acquired without
pain or hurt.

I gave you a rose,
A symbol of love,
Beautiful and pure,
A gift from above.
White as a lily,
As smooth as silk, newly spun,
Smelling so heavenly,
Hoping that your heart is what I won.
Another one so red,
Vivid in the light,
Showing the love I have for you,
The love that makes all this feel right.
No matter what happens,
What will go right or wrong,
These roses will always stay with you,
Remaining beautiful, no matter how long.
