Flowers Make Me Happy (oh, my happy valentine)

If ever a rose were to sing a song, I know ‘crimson’ would enter the lyric.

But a tulip would dance and think of romance while swaying to and fro.

The carnation would drive in a pickup truck for wine and chocolates.

There are fewer flowers still, wild in the hills, that color this beautiful landscape.

Nature’s the thing and daisies make rings, that symbolize weddings and relationship things.

Delicate flowers, the orchid is surely one, with a stoic white porcelain appearance and fine lines and profile, a pretty soft smooth touch.  If colors were choices and flowers made up their minds, it would choose many from the visible spectrum.

Flowers make me happy any time of year, but today I think of a significant other.

Each one of us deserve to see and smell the roses!

Happy Mother’s Day 2018

A Lifetime of Assistance

When I was a kid, you would look after me well,

As an adult, I’m glad you didn’t send me to hell,

I had lots of ups and downs to overcome,

You’d watch and support me through everyone,

As I grew, you saw me change and grow,

You accepted me and worked hard to let me go

I moved to Edmonton for 25 years,

You took my calls and flowers each one of these years,

I came back to Victoria 15 years ago,

We are friends and help each other grow…

I’m looking forward to heading out with you

To the casino on Mom’s Day, see you soon.

Your Son, Michael
