I Never Promised You A Rose Garden

Let us look into that,
Yes, I will dear,
You know that our best friend must be near.

They say diamonds are a girls best friend,
If this is true,
Why are they measured in carrots then too.

Diamonds come in different shapes and colors, and styles
I asked her, 'I wouldn't just one do? '

She said, ' If you love, you will buy the best! '
I smiled and that is what I did, you know the rest!

Now, since I have bought my intended the diamond,
We no longer eat steak,
I'm on a diet of green on my plate.

The only thing I have of color,
Are my carrots,
And if I complain,
I quickly learned that all words are the same.

Words come in bunches,
So do carrots,
Now, if I mind my peas and q's
And do upset her,
I will be able to afford another type of dinner.

However, all that I have learn from this is,
Please allow your plate to full of good old carrots.

Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
