He bought a dozen roses
And left them out in sight
Hoping they would heal the hurt
And make things be all right

He knew they couldn't make up for
The dozen tears he made her cry
But his love for her was very strong
So he felt he had to try

She saw the flowers lying there
And she knew what they were for
But how could she forgive him
Or even trust him anymore

They were beautiful in color
Each one so pink and long
But their beauty couldn't take away
The fact that he'd done wrong

But suddenly she saw it
It was just a little note
Her eyes begin to fill with tears
From the words that he had wrote

In just a few small phrases
He grew a whole bouquet
A hundred roses couldn't take the place
Of the words he wrote that day

She placed the roses in a jar
And admired them each day
Remembering the words of love
That just roses couldn't say

Sis....I like this version much better. Amazing what truths words can speak that gestures can't hold a candle too. Again, I welcome your talents to this group.
Hugs
Your big Sis

Milady: I with Lady Hoot on this one... a good sequel though. The two work well together. I like the flow of this one as well.

This is great! Thanks so much for sharing it.
Great that you left the "words" to our imagination

What a lovely sequel! And it's got a happy ending-great that they worked it out.
