A Dozen Roses


I got a dozen roses from a friend the other day

But I only have one left, for I gave them all away.

I gave one to my sister, who to me is very dear

In the hopes that it will bring to her a little floral cheer.

I took one to a friend who's not feeling very well

The flower or the visit, which helped more I could not tell.

The rest went to the ones who've helped me in so many ways

They have been a cheerful presence on my dreariest of days.

The roses were so pretty, I just could not keep them all

Except one single rosebud, standing beautiful and tall.

My friend gave me the flowers to help brighten up my day

But the biggest joy I received was giving them away.
