Please, Colour Me Roses - Poem by JESUROBOOWIE GIFT IMAFIDON

Being young and new in high school

You welcomed me into the class

With a classy smile and friendship

So I sent you a single stem rose for your simplicity

College took us far for years

Seeing you again a fully grown woman

I sent a thornless rose for it was love at first sight

After which I received an orange rose from you

Saying I have been your secret love

For our first date I could remember giving you a hibiscus rose

You were a delicate beauty

When you smiled so lovingly and all I could offer was a pink rose

For you were my symbol of perfect happiness

Since I couldn’t get you out of my mind

I decided to express it through a black rose

For you were my obsession

And when I almost lost you because of another

I needed to send you a yellow rose for I was really jealous

We click again like lovebirds

So I offered to you the white and red rose

To show that we are inseparable

In returned you posted a tea rose to me

Informing me that you will always remember

Hurriedly I made up my mind that you should be mine for ever

So I proposed with a red rose and a diamond ring

Yes, with tears in your eyes you replied

And at our wedding you were so happy

As you threw the bridal rose

At our first night together I presented to you

A bed of white roses to depicts your innocence

Purity, secrecy and silence

All through the honeymoon

I experienced rose, champagne

For you were ever loving and tender

Just like the Nicole rose that reflects gracefulness and elegance

You walked with such charm like one of aristocratic birth.

And when the children started coming into our lovely home

All I could give was rosés, bouquet of matured bloom

To express my gratitude

When death finally stole you away

the only thing I could place on your tomb

Was a dried white rose

To show that death is preferable to the loss of virtue

And when I final cross the shore to join you

Since I have lived my life in roses

Nothing more should I ask for

Than to be coloured in rose.
