Love and Roses

June is for weddings and for flowers

honeymoons and bridal showers

romantic picnics outside

walks along ocean’s tide

first dance or first kiss

falling star’s wish

love bestows

sweetheart

rose

Loveliness

Queen of the garden

fragrant gift

fragile kiss

Your presence is alluring

I wish you could stay.

Old fashioned, fragrant roses are my favorite.

Come Stand by Me

******************

Come stand by me

not as a perfect chorus

or as one who sings to please

It is simply you

 your presence I desire to be

A gentle lingering

song

 whispered between us two

~

Come stand by me

just as you are

and all that you will be

our loneliness undone

as friends and companions to see

together facing

all

that our future will have sung

~

Come stand by me

our voices full or not

bound as one – yet free

For it’s your heart’s song I long to hear

joined with warm tones in me

 love’s lyrics that we belong

us

 forever near.

 for doing the best thing a dad can do for his children—

love their mother. ❀ ~

I enjoy a word in season, so I'd love it if you added an apple to the bowl.
