I Treasure You
Rhyming With Orange
A Flower Representing Love
A Strange Animal, Indeed!
A Flower Representing Love:
You wanted attention so that you could feel beautiful...
I plucked out my eyes and gave them to you to keep
For all times, so you may not ever feel unwanted.
You wanted to be held so that you may be comforted...
I ripped off my arms and gave them to you to keep
For all times, so you may not ever feel alone.
You wanted support to help you stand firm...
I tore my legs away and gave them to you to keep
For all times so you may never fall again.
You wanted to feel the beat of another heart with yours...
I extracted my heart and gave it to you to keep
For all times, next to yours so you may feel love.
You wanted to feel that special kind of bond...
I relinquished my soul over to you to keep
For all times, so you may be forever happy.
With all that you wanted, I gave without question
In the name of love, for another so special to me.
For all times to keep, so you may never feel sorrow again.
Some years have passed since the giving of all I have.
You’re still comforted much, never feeling unwanted,
By bonds that hold fast and stay strong forever!
What is left of me, in the wake of what once was so beautiful,
Is a partial corpse of no value to this world. Excepting,
It may feed new life that will become A Flower Representing
