Heavy is the heart that flutters with joy
Paused in exhilaration of the days that cometh
Yet it had to be June 2020 when it’d dawn upon
Amidst despair while being under lock-down

Devoid of Showers Bridal, in fragrant hues floral
Wishes virtual, Blessings from unfeigned hearts real
From a Bond of Unity that many a seasons attest
With a Bouquet of Flowers symbolic from times ancient

Soft delicate Pink Roses in a posy
For the amicable self thy lovely
To resemble the Loveliness that You are
From inside out, truth be bare

We got you Something Old,
The good times ours that’s Gold
Then the Daffodils with much Regard
With Peonies for eminent Fortune Good

Something New, our wishes fresh ‘n anew
Something Borrowed, off this time hollowed
Something Blue, and a Sixpence in Her Shoe
Nothing like Hyacinth for Constancy of Love to woo

Sprigs of orange Roses, for figments of fascination
That you carry within the depths of your imagination
Ivy for fidelity, friendship ‘n then affection
With Hydrangea, for understanding, Thank You

Lily and the Lily of the Valley in magnificence
For purity and humility, virtues you truly embrace
And finally, Zinnias the one of current trends
For Thoughts of Us, the Absent Friends!
