What's in a ROSE???

Flowers... What a girl needs is flowers...

Flowers are constantly billed as the epitome of love. Flowers are fragile, and their beauty is delicate. Like a relationship between a man and a woman, special care is needed to make them last longer, but everyone knows that they are temporal. Beauty that is here one day, and gone the other.

I engaged in a discussion with a friend earlier, and it all started when she said she was tending to some roses that her housemate bought from Cameron. So we were happily chatting until she asked, "When was the last time you got your girlfriend some flowers?"

I told her, "I have never gave my girlfriend flowers."

"I don't like to give her something that's temporal."

She said: "You have a point."

Flowers are temporal. It is indeed beautiful, and delicate, but such beauty only lasts for a few days. I would rather give my girlfriend something that lasts, like diamonds and pearls. But since I couldn't afford those yet, she'll have to do with gold first.

Many a time, we have settled for the temporal in place of the lasting. And sometimes, we are willing to give up a lot of things in order to gain such temporal happiness. And if flowers were to represent my love for my girlfriend, then that would mean that I will only love her for a short while!

So, girls, make sure you don't ask for temporal love from your boyfriend. But then, only God can give us eternal love. Man can give you his life, but never everlasting love.

My plan is to give her some when I propose... and so that she cherishes the moment, that'll be the only time I will give her flowers... White Lillies...

i think she'll get the hint when she receives white lillies...
