I Will





All girls long for little luxuries,
                             for flower feasts,
                             for deep bliss submersion.

So darling, though they bloom
 not as beautiful as you,
                   I will bring you roses, I will draw your bath.
                   I will paint your childhood with love, colors, vibrant, as best I can
                                                                           and your story, I'll pen with belles-lettres,
                                                                                                         while I'm able.

And when fully blossomed and in love
                                 my prayer will be that he, too,
                                                  will often bring you roses.

  3. A little girl is so special - ours may be 22 and a college graduate, and is special but even sweeter when she was little. So, yours is a beauty and she no doubt appreciates the styling attention as she grows. So nice!

  11. Hello.
    If he loves her, he'll not only bring her roses, but endless love, laughter, smiles & hugs (smile).

    So sweet & thoughtful.
    Thanks for sharing.
