A Little Love to Give Like Flowers
If I could tie a bow around my heart
and give it as a gift
I think I'd wrap it twice just so
you'd spend more time with it.
I'd tie the bow so tightly round
that scissors wouldn't work.
No rushing with this type of gift
no rips or hasty jerks.
And when you finally found the heart
prepared so nice for you
it would have a big wide sign that read
'take care of this, or you'll be a murderer.'
