Roses Don’t Lie… Not Really

Posted by in on 28-12-15

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Beautiful and true
Like the song in your heart
The rhythm of its beat
The sweetest I ever heard
I’m addicted to their tune
When you lie next to me
And mine heart echoes its beats
Their melodious tune
Leapt into my mouth.
Mingled with my breath
Filled the morning air
With the fragrance of our love
