token of Love

You handed me this beautiful-
bouquet of flowers
Their perfume invaded the air
My eyes filled up with tears
as they gazed at this massive token of love!

Such a gay perfusion of colours
standing proud in a crystal case
Admired by all who were passing
this wonderful token of love

Each hand-picked bloom is perfection
A gift from the land and the heart
It brings beauty and love to each other
when given as a token of love

Each blossom says" Truly, I love you", or
"I will cherish and love you evermore", or
"I hope I can soothe your emotions
with each stem from this token of love!"
