Sometimes Roses

  Sometimes Roses

We each have an inner rose,
A rose that knows not where it goes,
For every love, a petal stays
To lead us back from those dark days…

Sometimes it’s sweet… this life we meet
Sometimes it’s hard and trying,
Sometimes it’s fast or slower still,
Sometimes it feels like dying…

Sometimes you wish upon a star
To see the hard times wither,
Sometimes you see your wishes fade
Your falling star’s gone hither…

The roses red make young hearts bleed
The pinks are for your daughters,
The whites are bold, leaves things untold,
The yellow rose for mothers…

Sometimes love’s not a real sure thing
Sometimes  it’s  just the other,
Sometimes it’s not to second guess,
So still, it’s worth the bother…

Love makes the heart beat strong sometimes
And makes emotions tender,
Thus when your rose of love takes root
Your heart’s your sweet betrayer …

The pitter pat of love’s sweet child
The call to mom and daddy,
The promise made...To never fade,
This makes loves reason stronger…

I’ve been through love’s most sacred door,
I’ve been to heav’n and yonder,
For in love’s tender throes, you see,
The animal’s made surrender…
