"A Simple Rose" by Kevin Mends

A simple rose I have found
It's not the flower that grows from the ground,
Its beauty is one of such delight ...
This rose is soft to the touch in all its perfection.

The envy for all the flowers in this garden
Its fragrance will consume your every obsession.
This rose must be a gift, a gift from above
A gift from Heaven to show us love.

Every morning I wake to see its petals glisten
Its easy to see how one could be so smitten
If love was a rose it would shine so bright
Because all I need is this rose in my life.

Congratulations to Roman and Suzy and the rest of the Enriquez family on their beautiful baby Rose Francis,
Mazel Tov, she's beautiful and I love you guys!!
