One White Rose

May 18, 2013


 

On the day that he wed,

He gave her one white rose.

She placed it by their bed

Where, they laid in passion’s throes.

When she bore their first child

He gave her one white rose.

It was pure and it was wild

Just the way that their love grows.

Before he said goodbye,

He gave her one white rose

And, he told her not to cry

For his love is where she goes.

Before she parted from his grave,

She gave him one white rose.

His memory was all she could save

From the hundreds of crosses in hundreds of rows.
