When you give me roses...even just one...I put them in a vase full of water...They are always so beautiful...Some people ask why I keep them when they die...My answer is always...A rose is a rose it withers and dies... so long as you keep it the memories survive...I do not know why I reply with this...I just do...They're pretty alive...They're pretty when they die...I know ya'll don't understand...But how would you feel if you were to die and instead of a beatiful funeral we tossed you aside...So when my lovely roses wither away...I simply keep them in a box...For some other day...When I feel the need to cry or when I'm thinking of you...I open the box...and again they bloom...So please now that I have explained...When I keep them...Don't think I'm insane...I simply love the thought of you...And of course my beautiful roses

My wife does the same thing. She has several beautiful vases full of rose petaled memories.
I too liked the line: *A rose is a rose it withers and dies...so long as you keep it the memories stay alive* Nice thought. Thanks for sharring.

Say-y-y-y-y-y-y.... Lily. You've given me a great idea...

Hello Mr. Florist, at your back door,
You're probably wondering what I'm here for.
I need some roses, prefereably dead,
That I can palm off on my Honey instead
Of your bouquets with their pricey fees.
So I'll wait in this dumpster, and get mine for FREE!

heh heh heh

I loved your poem, lil Lily - but why oh why do you make me feel so devilish?????

And LongJohn......I swear to God, you are one in a zillion.....I'm working on a way to post a sweet poem about you man....maybe this story from Princess will help me in that endeavor...and, of course your reply to her....

Well my dear Long John,
I may have suggested that dead flowers were beautiful, but did not mean run out and grab some-HEHE.Good one though!Well, Just to let you in on a little secret if you give her a dead rose and she keeps it and you also-- she is probably in love with you--wouldn't you agree?LOL~Lily

Does it sound better---survive than stay alive-I think so

i agree. "survive" sounds much better than "stay alive."
however, that's just my opinion.

Princess....breathing makes LongJohn feel devilish.....but when someone writes something as thought provoking as you have here...it kinda makes him go crazy....You'll see how he is soon....he's the type of guy that on Valentine's day, takes his "honey" to Kmart....let's her pick out her own card, then lets her swing by and take advantage of a blue light special..then takes her to Hooters for a nice meal.....Whatta guy!

Little Lily, its all a lie,
Toerag really is a real sweet guy.
He loves to give his sweetie pie
Everything he can (he really tries).

Including...

A fancy ring made of glass,
A second hand movie pass,
Power tools that run on gas,
And lots of new Playboy mags.

But wait, there's more...

He gives her the silence that she needs,
By watching wrestling on TV.
He drinks lots of beer so she won't see
Him lose the girth that hides his knees.

Are you convinced yet?...

That he is just a romantic fool,
Who last Christmas gave her tools,
Who exercises on barroom stools,
Who watches women while he drools?

Well, I'm glad we got all that straightened out...

Now, remember - we mustn't let Toe see this poem - the poor guy would be devastated if the secret of his charm got out.
