    Mandarin scented candles
    leave a peaceful aroma
    as I sprinkle red rose
    petals across the bed;

    I take the remaining petals
    and patiently lay them
    on the living room floor
    in the shape of a heart;

    I light six red candles
    releasing the scent of
    joy and place them in a
    circle within the heart;

    the gold plates are polished
    and the Merlot breathing
    as I place our evening meal
    facing across each other;

    I fold our napkins in the
    shape of doves and light
    the centerpiece while the
    voice of Jazz fills the room;

    I meet you outside the
    door when I hear your
    car and I await for you
    with a loving embrace;

    “Close your eyes for I
    will lead you tonight”
    so I open the door and
    slowly guide you in;

    I dim the lights so the
    candles illuminate more
    and I whisper in your ear,
    “you can open them now;”

    as you scan the room
    an exasperated sigh
    comes forth as you ask,
    “What’s the occasion?”

    I wrap my arms around
    you as I stand behind you
    and whsiper in your ear,
    “no reason…just because.”


    true love needs no reason to be...

    WONDERFUL!

    i love the picture you painted here of preparation...
    you didn't need to go into the details of the aftermath
    but the preparation is key... very important!
    she is a fortunate sista!
