Ma petite fleur

A beautiful rose

Without a single thorn

The brightest jewel

In a sea of dark

You give me everything

Yet ask for nothing

Your gentle smile

Is the making of me

What could be more precious

Than to greet every dawn

Knowing your love is in my heart

And that my love is in yours

And when the night wraps its arms

Around another troubled day

I look towards the stars

For you are the brightest jewel

In that sea of dark.

I don't think any woman would be able not to melt after reading something like this :) Very beautiful and tender - I found its effect very soothing :)

Ah, oui! La Rose de Nouvelle France!

Full of intimate emotions and has slight sentimentality for the writer which shows greatly - letting the reader within your feelings. Brilliant.
