Such love, so deep it now brings only pain
As tears fall silently lost in the rain
Each drop washing away the vibrant hue
Of memories lost in intimate days
Like the roses that were once me and you
As you left me did you hear my soul cry
As you left me with no reason to be
No explanations that simply say why
Why you, when death’s hand should have taken me?
Yet in my love you fly forever free
While time moves, passing me by
Today’s thoughts combined in old-fashioned ways
As once more I whisper a fond adieu
These wilted roses are all that remain
