I'd give a yellow velvet rose to you
if you could unselfishly understand
the minute token of it's meaning.
I'd sit beside you quietly listening
to your voice dance within my mind
as minutes turn into hours by your side.
I'd light the tapered fragrant candles
so that in the flickering of the distant flame
your face could gently brighten my night.
I'd comfort you in my cradled longing arms
watching as your glowing ocean kissed eyes
slowly fall into their quest of peaceful sleep.
