The Blue Rose

I sent my love in the form of a rose for you.
I hope you don’t mind, but I sent one that was blue.
It’s my favorite colour and of course, yours too.
So I sent my love in the form of a Blue Rose for you.

I wanted to send something expensive like a watch or ring jewel. 
But realized that nothing was more priceless than a rose blooming full.
Something simple yet so elegant that will always be with you.
It may be an ordinary rose but its one that’s most blue.

This rose is special and will last seasons long.
Just like our strong father-daughter bond.
I choose only the best which your deserve,
A single long stemmed blue rose with a slight curve.

A rose so unique and one of a kind,
That in any other garden it will be most difficult to find.
Each petal so silky soft yet together they hold firm.
Nature’s most prized beauty has been confirmed!

I sent my love in the form of a rose for you.
I hope you don’t mind, but I sent one that was blue.
I impressed it with my hugs and even butterfly kisses,
So you will receive them with all of my very best wishes...

I tied a white ribbon and wrote your name on it too.
So everyone will know that it was sent just for you.
I stood by the riverbed under the beautiful evening stars.
Said a prayer and watched the rose drift quietly afar.

It followed the light from the ethereal moon,
So I knew it would reach you very soon.
Tears began to collide with a smile,
As I longed to be with you for just a while.

I closed my eyes, imagining you hugging me tight,
While the rose slowly disappeared under the moonlight.
So Dad, when you receive my love in the form of a Blue Rose.
Remember me always, as you forever hold it close.

    Wonderful description of the rose, as well as very 'in the moment' poetry. I find this to be realistic and moving. Exemplary work of art here.
