This a poem I wrote for the person I loved at the time. Her username was @sunflowerfox.
Once upon a time
A humble poet dared to rhyme
About the flower and the fox
An old tale so sublime

In the dark forest, grim and vile
Where one would only scream and never smile
With the wind came a lonely seed
A small piece of future and hope, indeed

The seed has grown to become a flower
Strangely shaped like the sun
Beautiful and strong, arising power

The darkness around it was no more
For the flower brought back the light
And the forest was green as it has never been before

Words were soon spread around
Could the village long lost hope
In the forest now be found?

One day a curious little fox came by
The tale of the sunflower, it was real and not a lie
And the smell, oh, it was so swell

From this day on the fox became the flower’s friend
They would play, and talk and dream
And stay together till the end

All this joy made an angry vicious witch a spell to cast
For the once dark forest was
Also home to evils from the past

A fire burns in the forest tonight
Flames and death alluring fight
Dark forces that intent to fright
Still a flower grows with all its might

“Go and save yourself, my friend”
The fox heard the flower say
“No, my dear, I rather stay
I’ll be here until the end”

The forest now has turned to gray
The village’s hope has gone astray
But it will come back one day

The legend of the flower and the fox lives on
Together they would forever be
For the two friends’ souls have joined in one
