    there wasn't a card with the roses
    everyone in the office supposes
    that the beautiful fragrance
    delivered today will come to their desk to stay

    Mary's man owes her an apology
    as she smiles thinking, oh how sweet
    but the roses pass by, going on down the hall
    toward Sam's desk as he tries to recall

    what woman would do this for me
    send me roses at work, let me see?
    as he ponders ... the roses continue
    toward Brenda on the phone w/her crew

    by the time she says good-bye
    the roses have passed her by
    all through the office they've traveled
    the scent of each petal unravels

    as the roses come toward me
    i think okay gurl breathe, count to 3
    did he do this for me?
    oh please let it be ...
    as the delivery man asks are you Destee?

    :)

    Awwww this is so cute. I could sense the anticipation in this piece. Getting flowers is such a small thing yet somehow it makes you feel most special. Enjoy! *smiles*
