  • Home after a long journey
    My girlfriend of 4 years
    Hugged me and
    Gave me a rose

    It was so simple
    Soft, pale, yellow,

    Just that small gesture
    After many hours of travel
    Across the wet British plains
    Made my heart smile
    And feel glad to be home again

    She gave me a Rose
