A Lovers Dozen

A Lovers Dozen

twelve red roses,
developed to their ultimate perfection,
each with its own meaning,
of my undying affection...
one rose represents trust,
a fragile and delicate part,
that's helped hold our relationship together,
even from the very start...
one rose for the chances,
that we both took to be together,
the chances that have us wishing,
we'll be with each other forever...
one rose for the secrets,
to each other we have told,
the ones known only to us,
which in our hearts we now hold...
one rose for the promises,
so subtle yet so strong,
promises of the future,
in which together we belong...
one rose for the faith,
that we both will stay true,
for now and forever,
through the day we say "I do..."
one rose represents the honesty,
that brings us closer each day,
opening up our hearts,
telling each other things we never thought we'd say...
one rose for the intimacy,
the gentleness of your touch,
one of the characteristics of our love,
in which there is never too much...
one rose for the memories,
that are locked deep in my heart,
of all the times we've spent together,
to think of when we're apart...
one rose for the dreams,
the dreams we both share,
of the future and our hopes,
of together being there...
one rose represents the gifts,
that you have given to me,
not the ones that come in boxes,
just the little things you can't see...
one rose represents the challenges,
that we've had to overcome,
to make our relationship into,
what it has become...
one rose stands for the year,
the good times and the bad,
all the moments we've spent together,
and all the times together we've had...
twelve red roses,
though they will begin to die in a day or two,
will forever serve as a reminder,
of the love i have for you...
