Rose Blush

As he hands her the blooming rose, she turns the same color pink. Her cheeks the same rose blush, shying away from his coarse hands as he strokes her face.
The rose will fade with time…as will the blush in her cheeks… as her shyness leads to love…her blush will fade…as her love leads to passion…so will his.
As he hands her a rose on their tenth anniversary…her long forgotten rose blush returns…

I think this was beautiful and thoughtful.  Keep up the good work and listen to suggestions along the way.

This is really good. If this is based on real events, then I'm happy for you or whoever this is about. All I would reccommend is to put it into the poetic format.
