Roses Are Red My Love .....

Roses Are Red, Violets Are Blue
*******
A long, long time ago
On graduation day
You handed me your book
I signed this way:

"Roses are red, my love.
Violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet, my love.
But not as sweet as you."

We dated through high school.
And when the big day came,
I wrote into your book,
next to my name:

"Roses are red, my love.
Violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet, my love.
But not as sweet as you."

Then I went far away
And you found someone new
I read your letter dear
And I wrote back to you:

"Roses are red, my love.
Violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet, my love.
But luck may god bless you."

Is that your little girl?
She looks a lot like you.
Someday some boy will write
in her book, too.

"Roses are red, my love.
Violets are blue.
Sugar is sweet, my love.
But not as sweet as you."

  14. such pretty colors! I am just amazed how crisp your tablecloths are! Never a bump, pucker or miss in your ironing. It is as if they floated down from tablecloth heaven to land perfectly on the table! Is there a secret? Or am I just not patient enough while ironing?--> I hope there is a secret! :)

  17. Isn't it lovely? mixmatching is the most wonderful you can make in your TS. Perfectly gorgeous!

    Unfortunately, I didn't participate this week as I have flu which turnt to severe bronchitis which I learnt after the xray result the other day. SUX! But, I will cope up when am feeling better.

    Happy TS to you.

    PS The trick to the ironing is my handy-dandy super-duper Rowenta steam iron! Mine is a Rowenta DG8030.
