There are many a rose
Among the gardens of the earth,
But it is you who have caught me.
As I touched you, you did prick me,
But my blood mingles with your petals;
The life of my pain
Blending into the crown of your beauty.
Your thorns meant no harm to me
But to those who would indeed
Carelessly trample your heart.

Darling, in my garden
You would grow free,
And taste the fine air
Of all you would desire.
I would grow beside you
And stand with you to welcome
The quenching of the rains,
And share with you always
The gentle warmth of sunlight.

If the wind blew from my way
I would block it from you.
If the rain grew too harsh,
I'd cover you with my own leaves.
My love for you would always
Be a one that perseveres,
Through the stifling heat of summer
And the frost of winter snows.

We'd dance happily in the breezes
Of the early summer's awakening
And silently gaze at the open sky
On days of wispy clouds
And nights of glittering endless stars.
