Please don't trample me

Like you would any other flower.

I am delicate;

More than I look, more than you think.

I am flexible,

But I can't always bend to your needs.


I have my defenses

Like roses have thorns;

But I have no reasons,

No cause for alarm.


I am brilliant and gentle,

The perfect candidate for your choice;

Which any day will prove.

Because each day I rise with the sun,

And each night I lie with you.
