Valentines Day

I give you a plant.
It's leaves fresh and new.
As it grows,
Our love grows with it.
It's strong, stable roots holding us together,
Through rainfall and sunshine,
Through thick and thin.

This plant can be easily killed
It needs love to survive
So Nurture it,
Water it,
And shelter it through life.
