A Tear Drop on a Rose

For here I stand amongst the garden
Vines along the gated path
Songs of never left forgotten
Blooming in the aftermath

Thus I find my heart is broken
Soft the air of fragrance pure
Lush within this fertile garden
Beauty I shall see no more

Silhouettes I long to beckon

A Tear Drop on a Rose

For here I stand amongst the garden
Vines along the gated path
Songs of never left forgotten
Blooming in the aftermath

Thus I find my heart is broken
Soft the air of fragrance pure
Lush within this fertile garden
Beauty I shall see no more

Silhouettes I long to beckon
Wave as if they need me so
Shadows formed on perfect hedges
Happiness I used to know

Winds of change now come to greet me
Whispering their sad refrain
To the sky, what is the meaning
I shall never love again

Lonely now my scented feelings
Rooted in the dark abyss
Memories now cast a calling
Looking back on times to miss

If by chance you walk this garden
Here where every flower grows
Find that I have left a message
In a teardrop on a rose
