red red rose

He gave to her
    a red, red, rose,
       it’s beauty so divine.
and whispered to her
    soft and sweet,
       of candlelight and wine.

Then gently placed
   her hand in his,
        and pulled her to him tight.
They danced unto
    a lover’s tune,
       under the pearl moonlight.

She promised to him
   all her love,
      he was the only one.
It nearly took
   his breath away,
      to feel his heart undone.

Through time the passion
   of her love,
       within his heart did fill.
And petals of
   the red, red, rose
        are kept beside him still.
