He brought a dozen roses
And gave them to his wife
He thought they'd take away the pain
That he'd shed upon her life

She took them in her fragile hands
But what her eyes did see
Was not how red the petals were
Or their natural beauty

Instead she saw a dozen tears
That he had made her cry
Until there was no more to drop
And her bright brown eyes were dry

Red roses are a sign of love
At least that's what they say
But how can love cause so much pain
And make her feel this way

If only he had kissed her
A dozen times or more
Or showed twelve reasons why he cared
Then she would know for sure

But instead he buys her roses
To help cover up the hurt
But roses die within a week
If not planted in the dirt

Greetings Milady. It sounds as though thorns were more the bloom of this relationship. How unfortunate he did not know the value of giving in the manner of the second to last stanza. Well said and welcome to our corner of the world.

Welcome, MiLady! Nice to have you here. Roses have thorns, just like love, and maybe that's why it hurts so...beautiful poem.
