I Shall Sent You No More Flowers

I shall send you no more flowers No more poems from my heart I sent the last one yesterday Time to make a brand new start There were two roses in a bottle I said 'I wish to share with you” Sent with the highest expectations Hoping our passion to renew Seems they meant nothing For the response I got from you “Hmmm yes now I remember One was red and one was blue " . Could understand the red one For it has a pinkish kind of hue The other one was yellow It damn sure wasn't blue . The bottle that I sent them in From wine that we once shared When we finished up that bottle Made love like you really cared . Saved it for a special time That bottle meant that much to me Always kept it on my mantle Brought back pleasant memories . Now I'm glad it's off my mantle I shall look at it no more Wish I had known long ago Loving me was such a chore . So you can take that bottle Smash it on the ground Break it in a thousand pieces I shall no longer be around . Let the petals on the rose's fall Watch them wither up and die Really don't give a damn no more For this is my last goodbye.
