Artist's Description

A sentimental favorite, this rose photo was taken in 2002 with my then almost 3 year old Kodak DC290 Zoom Digital.
The heart was created in Adobe Photoshop 1999 Business Edition.
Buy Me a Rose is just good advice! ☺♥
Rose location: southeastern Connecticut (USA)
Dedicated to those who understand that “forever” means “as long as we both shall live.”

He works hard
To give her all
He thinks she wants
A three car garage,
Her own credit cards
He pulls in late to wake her up
With a kiss Good night
If he could only
Read her mind,
She’d say:
Buy me a rose,
Call me from work
Open a door for me,
What would it hurt
Show me you love me
By the look in your eyes
These are the little things
I need the most in my life

Now the days have grown
To years of feeling
All alone
And she can’t help
But wonder what
She’s doing wrong
Cause lately she’d
Try anything
To turn his head

Would it make a difference
If she’d said:
Buy me a rose,
Call me from work
Open a door for me,
What would it hurt
Show me you love me
By the look in your eyes
These are the little things
I need the most in my life

And the more that he lives
The less that he tries
To show her the love
That he holds inside
And the more that she gives
The more that he sees
This is a story of you
And me

So I bought you a rose
On the way home from work
To open the door
To a heart that I hurt
And I hope you notice
This look in my eyes
‘Cause I’m gonna make
Things right
For the rest of your life
(Rest of your life)
And I’m gonna
Hold you tonight
Do all those little things
For the rest of your life…
