The way black roses can make people feel better when they lose someone.....Black because they're also in mourning...Roses because they keep watch over people's headstones.....ummmmm...how one day people say "Oh how beautiful" and then they are forgotten...and how black roses that have been on gravestones remind you of those you've lost....

We can all see the rose
Painted as black as can be
Scattered across the dark grey stem
Are thorns sharp and holding fleet
***
Roses black within freezing images
Painting pictures of sad deaths
No more "As I lay me down to sleep"s
As sorrow drowns their empty beds
***
Endless loving graves read,
"Up above with the Lord
As he goes up to God's arms
The angels'll let out a heavenly chord
Jesus' angels will keep him safe
And there is no need to ponder
For he is in a better place
He is but an angel who has wandered"
***
You mark the graves, Roses Black
Of endless beloved souls
Roses Black, you begin to flame
From the countless dark coals
***
As some live on to achieve and soar
Roses Black will be waiting
To capture the souls of all the broken
And keep safe the souls of the fading
***
Roses Black, you have my love
For holding those for who we cared
And even when there's no one left
You let us know you're always there
***
Hold all, Roses in your safe petals of Black
You hold the souls of those passed on
So you may proceed, Roses Black
Inside your world until the dawn
...
