mixed bouquet

Did I forget to say
I love you?
  Freesia.
Did you know
you’re my wish come true?
  Heather.
Did I tell you
how thankful I am for you?
  Hydrangeas.
Did you know
how strong I know you are?
  Gladiolus.
Do you want 
to restart fresh, with me?
  Daffodils.
Do you believe I’ll feel the same
for the rest of my life?
  Red and white chrysanthemums.
You waited for me
for ten years before I said yes.
  Aster.
Have I forgotten
to put you first?
  Anemone.
But I remember you now,
your unfailing love.
  Statice.
And I wrap them
all together with
  Forget-me-not.
