i got creative on this shit k

You always said your favorite flower was a red rose,
and I never knew why but then and after
I always said my favorite flower was
a red rose.
I never told you even though I was shit at keeping secrets,
but I always planned on bringing one of the beautiful
red roses from my garden
when I met you at the airport.
Well, I never got to,
and I know you’ll never know this
but whenever anyone asks what my favorite flower is,
I still tell them
a red rose.
