Anniversary Roses

She loved all flowers

But she had a penchant for roses

They were the one flower

He gave her every year

One rose for each year together

Until fate put her

In the wrong place

At the wrong time

And a drunk driver stopped her

He still gives her roses every year

But now he puts them on her headstone
