My birthday fell on a weekend
but I was surprised to receive
a rose from my son, Kurt.
When he got home from school
afternoon of June 28... he handed me
with a shy-mannered gesture,
a single stem with a red rose
in full bloom and greeted me in advance.
He said, he wanted to buy a bunch
but his money could only afford one.
I felt so touched with this simple
yet meaningful expression of love.
