Tears of the Roses
Wherever you go you will find tears of the roses|
That have been cried by all mankind,
Sometimes they are cried in sadness, but mostly, Iíd like to think,
They are tears of a happier kind.
Red, yellow, purple or pink
They all get one a little misty eyed,
When they are sent to many places around the world
Making us think of all the rivers that have been cried.
Usually sent with terms of endearment
Written on a note with intentions made clear,
ĎIím sorry; I love you; my condolences;
Please forgive me, my dear.í
Still, it is through the eyes of love
Roses acquire most of their fame,
As they do on my love notes
That bear your beautiful name.
I think back on the inception of our love
As I wait in your hospital room,
Waiting for you to come around
And to relieve my fear of impending doom.
You started with the yellow roses back then
My favorites, I donít know how you knew,
And I thought it to be such a sweet gesture
That it easily drew me close to you.
I smile too, as I remember that first touching song of love
You sang to me while holding me gently in your arms,
It was a sizzling spectacular of a song you sang
As you wooed me with your wonderful manly charms.
I could see that there was so much depth in you
It was evident by the stories in your eyes,
And I was beginning to love you more and more
As each new and exciting day went by.
I have always thought that you and your loving arms
Would be there forever by my side,
But life and love are just not that simple
For it is God, in His infinite wisdom, who finally decides.
I feel that our love is invincible
And that whatever the challenge may be,
We will overcome them my husband, because you are my friend,
And I only hope you know, that you will always have a friend in me.
Today I came home to a house full of roses
Breathtakingly beautiful bouquets of every hue,
Every note had a different message of love for me,
But the yellow ones in the hallway were the only ones signed by you.
I opened the box next to the roses
With tears filling up my eyes.
Inside there was a CD with that first song of love you sang to me
I sat down as I listened, overcome by emotion and cried.
Your message on the CD spoke of how much you loved me
And thanked me for loving you too.
You said that if you didnít make it through the operation
That Godís love would see me through.
The pain in my heart seemed unbearable
Before we went into your operation yesterday,
But I had to stay strong for you
Till you were completely out of harmís way.
I spent the night lying in a bed next to you
Close enough to stroke your beautiful blond hair.
Although the operation was now over and a big success
You stayed in the hospital to give your body time to repair.
My tears for fear of your dying had turned to tears of joy
Just one hour ago,
When I listened to you singing that beautiful song again
For it made me feel the tremendous depth of your love...
That you were determined to have me know.
