A ROSE IN THE MORN

A rose in the morn is a wonderful thing,
a smile to the face it will always bring;
but when it has wilted, it is soon forgot
and so is the smile that it once brought.

Instead, I offer these heartfelt sentiments,
that you can accept with all my compliments;
for kind words, unlike roses, won't fade away,
so I'll tell you "You're Beautiful" every day.

With every breath I speak each word,
my heart's thoughts you will have heard,
and if I ever forgot to say how I felt,
I want you to know that you make my heart melt.

You're the most precious gem I could find,
forever touching my soul and my mind;
and shall you ever feel forlorn,
I will cheer you with a rose in the morn.
