ELEVEN ROSES AND YOU


Farewell my love, for I must depart from our secret dreams until tomorrow comes.

I am flattered you have chosen this simple man to hide in your eyes for the beauty of a forbidden love.

Your elegant, sultry style keeps me captivated inside the superiority of your loving heart.

The emotional angst I once experienced from lonesomeness has all disappeared ever since our lips danced to your favorite song.

Among the snowflakes of a cold, wintery day, my heart is warmed knowing your thoughts are only of me as you sit quietly with your friends.

In intimate moments, your lipstick stains my dreams with breathless kisses born under the glory of a golden sunshine.

My darling, until we meet again, I shall wait anxiously for you with eleven roses…knowing your beautiful face will complete the dozen.

    This has taken my breath away. I just adore the words which say that waiting for the eleven roses will be fine, as the dozen roses will be together, once you love returns again.
    How romantic and sweet.....

    Best Wishes Andy.
    I hope all is goood with you these days.
    Looking forward to Christmas with my grandson.
    Best wishes, Eileen :)
