Orchid Love.

In the many years before she passed

Orchids were so beautiful in her life.

After her passing they passed as well,

I believe they are with her.


I bought some more for her

As a memory of her life,

Our life together over many years.

Each day they grew

And each day the flowers appeared,

Those flowers showed me she was there,

There with me,

As she will be forever.


So each day the love of my life

Shines through those orchid’s flowers

Showing her love for me.

I know that our love will never die

And we will be together for eternity.

                'Sapphire Galaxy's' were a favourite, of my most cherished
                (funny enough also in the orchid family)
                I bought them for our one year anniversary, by chance
                and she fell in love, at first sight... lol
                thanks for sharing Andy
                and allowing us all to reminisce
                a wonderful gift
