A Dozen Roses Multiplied

He's not a romantic guy, still he loves her so.
Sometimes she sits and wonders, why it doesn't show.

One day a dozen roses, delivered Federal Express.
A gift to ease her sadness, she held them to her chest.

Thinking through their life, the things that he has done.
His loving gifts of service, she places a rose on every one.

All the hours that he works, the times he is away.
Providing for their needs, he works hard to earn his pay.

The things around the house, that he takes time to repair.
Not the thing of romance, yet each one shows he cares.

The roses have multiplied, by all that he has done.
She sheds a tear of thankfulness, she is his special one.

    The Gnome in the commercial says it right. "Go and smell the roses"

    Richard-- you have written on my marriage here too. Always complaining I never get flowers, yet I have a husband who provides, cares and immerses himself in maintaining our happiness. Flowers wilt, sacrificial love is for eternity. Wonderful real write.
