He gave her red roses
To show the love in his heart.
She was the beauty who had
Enchanted him from the very start.
He always brought a single red rose
Each time they went on a date.
Down deep in her heart she knew
He was the one that would be her mate.
On their wedding day many red roses
Filled the quaint little church.
Where their friends and family gathered
In that small chapel among the birch.
He was the one she could count on
When things in life went bad.
Somehow it was him who could always
Cheer her up when times were sad.
He had held her tight in his strong arms
That night when their baby died.
He was the one who had to be strong
Even though deep in his heart he too cried.
Two years later their dream to be parents
Would be fulfilled as again she gave birth.
He overflowed her room with red roses
As their life was filled with mirth.
So many years have come and gone,
As their love has grown stronger with time.
And he still gives her those beautiful red roses
Since their love shall forever be sublime.
