A Single Rose - Poem by Gail Grierson

I walked among the flowers
To choose one just for you;
So many blooms to pick from,
Some in every hue.

Purples, yellows, pinks, and whites,
Even shades of blue,
Tulips, daisies, daffodils,
Lilies, pansies, too.

A difficult decision
That took me quite a while.
Which would be the right one -
The one to make you smile?

And then I thought it over
I knew just what to do;
I chose a single, deep red rose
To show my love for you.
