The Flower Promise

We promised

no flowers to say

I am sorry

only to show our love.

If flowers, or chocolates,

or pretty things

were only given

as an apology

then they lost all meaning.

We promised

flowers were to say

I love you

and that is exactly what we did.

An important vow

that many couldn’t understand.

But to us

it was far more important

than ‘til death do us part.

An important lesson

I will always carry through

until the end of my days.

For when I find another

I will ensure she feels

A love so true.

It was the greatest honor

to make that vow with you.

It gave me a simpler view

of love so true.
