A Single Rose

A Single Rose

I give to you this precious gift
For I have naught but this to give,
A rose I hold in simple hands,
To signify my love within

So hard it was to choose just one
For many held the beauty of you,
Reflected in their crimson tones
And basking in their rosy hues

But oh, how one, it caught my eye
Ablaze with color, apart from rest
Reduced me to a breathless sigh
And lured me with its lovely scent

So this I chose, a single rose,
Its tender petals silken smooth,
And with it give this fragile heart
And with it ... give my love to you
