Tenderness of an Iris

She smiles with the tenderness of an iris A wonderful blush of mauve and lavender There’s not anyone I’d rather see than this One who holds my heart and is my real lover Her appearance is just like a full flower She holds my stare and has some extreme power To hear her sigh is like music to my ears I will always hold her close for all our years

    I assume this was written for/about your wife. Could her name be Iris? I ask simply because it reminds me so of one I wrote for my wife some time ago. "A Rose That Never Fades" tells of the flower in my life... Great work, my friend.... Love reading it..... Jake
