A single rose, petals so delicate, nurtured by me,
Colors so vibrant, such a beautiful thing.
I give you a rose, a sign of my devotion,
This single rose, its colors shows my emotion.
Red is for passion, the color of love
Each petal the scent a gift from above.
Yellow is for friendship, the kind we hold dear,
For missing loved ones, those who aren't near.
White is for purity, a bride's bouquet,
To hold in her hands on her wedding day.
Roses, so sweet and meaningful to each of us
Colors, each meaning something unique, as though it were a touch.
