We stepped on our sparkling planet, hand in hand, together,
My heart was singing with happiness, as we smiled at each other like lovers.
you were being naughty the way you are, teasing me on my eye roll,
giving new interpretations to my simple gestures, exasperated I wanted to tie you to a pole.
From teasing to sweet romance, still not sure how the current shifted,
But I remember wanting to plant a special flower, just to enrich our gorgeous planet.
So I asked you if you would like to create a unique flower with me, something more beautiful than one had ever seen,
You smiled and said of course you would, and together we created a blossom more beautiful than any sun beam.
It was the colour of the purest red, with golden borders on the side,
You may think it was rose but it wasn’t, it was something more heavenly and divine.
It smelled like jasmine and midnight marigold, a sweet fragrance which you said represented me,
I added the heady perfume of the rose, an aroma which is associated with you in my dreams.
Our flower was so delicate and soft to the touch, it was like velvet honey,
It was created with so much love, a blossom more precious to us than money.
And now the problem came to us, what should we name our magical creation,
So I looked up the internet for possible names, a pretty name which would have our names in fusion.
We found a word so beautiful, it was perfect like a golden ray,
In Italian it meant a baby rose born of love, it even had our name fused in a way.
So we called it ROSA, our flower, and planted it lovingly on our planet,
Knowing it would always symbolise our love, and touch our heart with its enchanting magic
Many days have passed since we created it to life, and it always smiles happily at us,
Sweetening our life with its pretty fragrance, strengthening our bond with tenderness and trust.
