A fake rose stands for forever

Though I know this sounds absurd-
But if you give your lover
More than a thoughtful word,
Give them a rose of plastic
Or maybe one of cloth
For it may not seem romantic
But romance is in the thought.


A rose will start to wither
And crumble to decay-
But if a fake rose you give her
It will be there anyday.
As she sees this thoughtful symbol
She’ll know it in her heart-
That even though it’s simple
Your love will never part.

I wrote this piece while thinking about signs of affection. People get you flowers to symbolize their love but then the flowers die. Does this mean that their love passes with them?
