Roses

Roses, Roses

from where I do not know

Roses, Roses

show me where to go

 

my mother came a long way, 

her courage tossed and tried-

no matter how tired or lonely,

a rose was by her side

 

Roses, Roses

from where I do not know

Roses, Roses

show me where to go

 

my father and her children, 

came to her by Rose

someone was watching o’er

watching quiet and close. 

 

Roses, Roses

from where I do not know

Roses, Roses

show me where to go

 

to me a Rose came softly, 

amidst a big parade

I knew my prayer’d been answered, 

I knew that I was safe

 

Roses, Roses

from where I do not know

Roses, Roses

show me where to go
