  he came home
flowers in hand
all weepy eyed
a sorry man

says he loves me
always has
only I can save
him from bad

Iím tired and sore
he wants love
brought me roses
red as blood

again he promises
no more drink
I need some time
alone to think

thereís no way
heís gonna change
I hate flowers
ainít that strange

at least he's seen the error of his ways and that's big start. Don't blame you for hating flowers if the only time you get them is when he's groveling because of something terrible he's done. tell him he needs to give you flowers on happy occasions too, not just when he's in the doghouse. my dh almost never bring me flowers so I grow my own flower garden.

I like this one a lot. Simple, direct and to the point, but emotional and sad nonetheless.
