I introduced myselfnapo2014button1

and offered you

a rose

a red, red rose

the color of my heart

I offered

cotton candy words

and bitter coffee

tinged with cream


You graciously accepted


Now I must

step away

for the heart

does grow

somewhat fonder

with absence


I will not forget

your sweetness

your voice that

brightened my day

your touch

of comfort


I am


because of



I will not

disappoint you

on my travels

far, far away


In my heart

I carry

that red, red rose


just petals
