This copyrighted poem is actually a song which I composed for the sequel to my second book, "The Little Rosebud." (The sequel is entitled, "The Thorns of the Rose.") This song also won me the top five position as a Finalist in the VH-1 "Save the Music" Song of the Year international competition for January of this year. The judges for that competition include Grammy-award-winning Norah Jones and Sheila E. It is an international competition. I also placed as Runner Up for several of my songs in the July competition of this year.

"The Thorns of the Rose" Why does my heart still search for an answer? Why does my heart keep reaching for the sun? If I still search, I know I'll discover, What makes the rivers flow? Why do flowers bloom and... How am I to know? Someone tell why, oh why... There are thorns on the roses. Why, tell me why, my heart keeps calling for me? Why does my heart reach for the sun? If I just search, I know I'll keep from falling. What makes winter snow? Why do sparrows sing and... How am I to know? Why are there thorns on the roses? Because the thorns of the roses are pricking like a knife and cutting to the core. And, oh, those thorns of the roses... Why do I feel so strange? It's mystifying! Why do my heart and soul inside keep crying? If I just search, I know I'll keep from falling. If I keep reaching for the sun. Maybe then I'll know why my heart keeps calling. Maybe then I'll know... Why the rivers flow and What makes flowers bloom, Why there's winter snow and... Why do sparrows sing, Why the church bells ring and Why the moonlight glows... Then I'll know why...oh, why... There are thorns on the roses, oh!... The thorns of the roses.
