She said our love was like a flower
So alive for all to see
A thing of beauty to behold
Something surely meant to be

A thing to be admired by all
Yes, let there be no doubt
Our love was in full blossom
and the envy of those without

Respect and admiration
are what made our love so strong
Trust and understanding
made it last so long

No special skills were needed
Only two who truely care
Each more for the other
and eager to do their share

Yes, love is like a flower
yet, some day it, too, may bend
Should there ever come to pass
a strong summer wind

Then love, so like the flower,
when the wind should come to test
will again be strong as ever
and blossoming at it's best
