Once i had a secret love
I sent him a single white rose
card with simple message
three little words.

Come what may
he looked at me
talked to me
told me all.

The inner person
he did not see
loving him quietly
for many a year.
crying a silent tear.

You always tried to guess
who loved you so much
I am here,under your nose
I sent the single white rose.

You confided in me
saw you dream
of who it could be.

You tore at my heart
no idea it's me
I am the woman
you hold in your dreams.

Another year
your none the wiser
what will you do
when you find out.

You fondle the rose
like fondling my skin
see your fingers
caress each petal.

I feel the warm glow
for one day a year
you are mine
my own sweet

Enjoyed this Alice ;-) Very much liked 'under your nose' - definitely a common scenario...And also liked the idea of your valentine confiding in you about the mysterious rose (also a common scenario I think!)- I do think the roles of 'confidante' and 'lover' are so easily entwined/mistaken.

Loved the sensuality of the penultimate verse. Wondering why a 'white' rose (purity, innocence, difference?)- what's its meaning in the language of flowers? You are obviously a more inventive valentine than most! Have you ever thought of being less subtle? 'Happy Valentine's' nikki x

White rose is yorkshire. We do not show our feelings here as much as most.Doesn't mean to say we don't feel. This is fiction by the way.Only had one lover and he was never a secret love.xxAl

You dirty old woman! Nice poem. How about a red rose from the house of Lancaster?
