Long Lived The Rose

Long Lived The Rose

Long lived the rose out on sea
I know my heart has been cut very deep
But now it speaks of truth of long ago
of the ones who cut at my soul
I have lost and I had loved
but with time even the twilight in my eyes lost sight
of what was and what is yet to come
No one hand seen us holding hands of love
at sea level of a lost rose lives
as the night dropped on the world so did my heart
some calls me the love that grow on sea
deep into the sea a rose of love came to be and that is me
This beauty of nature of love was like a dream
I have seen from my window deep within my soul
this rose was once black and faded
but now it is was white and shine so bright into the night at sea
The sunset in the distant mountain tops holds a story of me
I have seen the snow fall with out love
Sometimes when I think back a piece of coldness runs into my veins
like the snow that fallen on sea
the sun start up love of what had found me
But at the same time love can burn like a fire
With out nature's laws this love can end just like seasons
I remembered when my soul clenched into sadness
Where were you then when I needed you when I gone back
to a memory of a darken past
It so funny how I believed those lies that was told to me
oh how the pain of that love eats at me
I would here the words I love you why don't you see that
those words of true dark is what he called love
I got so sad and felt so mad just thinking of how I got lost
into a darken dreams
But sometime in my life that is all I had to believe
This old book about me is now open to the sea
Long lived the rose of long ago that one never even cared to know.
