Urgently need a translation help :)

0 votes

I desperately need to translate a poem verse for my wedding anniversary tomorrow. Please help if you can! 

"On this day, that I can not gift you flowers - I can create them. 
As God hand-crafted every petal of every Iris, so too did he every piece of you - that makes you the beautiful soul (that you are), and a delicate flower" 

Thank you in advance!

Hi Bluewmelon,

Here's my translation:

Сегодня я не могу подарить тебе цветы, но я могу придумать их!
Так же, как рука Бога создала каждый лепесток ириса, она сотворила и каждую часть тебя.  Бог сделал твою душу прекрасной, а тебя саму - нежным цветком.

Best,

Yulia Amlinskaya,
Russian language teacher.
