He Never Sends Me Flowers

    “He Never Sends Me Flowers,” Ensign, Feb. 1975, 58

    “He Never Sends Me Flowers”

    He never sends me flowers,

    No chocolates to surprise me.

    His message that he loves me

    Is received each time he “eyes” me.

    He never writes me poems,

    No valentine to treat me.

    Assurance that he loves me

    Smiles out each time he greets me.

    With soft unspoken glances,

    He never lets me wonder.

    I know he truly loves me,

    So who needs pearls or thunder?
