The rose that I gave you on our first date
still lingers in our hearts as we kiss,
and a diamond sparkles in both of us
as we hold each other protecting.
Battle scars have only expanded
our universe, tears no longer
encased, pulling us closer
in spite of the pain
and scars taught us
how to fight for each other
made our wild horses run
And it all began
with a single rose,
and then a promise
to always love
Happy Valentines Day Everyone!
