This Rose Will Never Die


You’ve always been a loner

With your own point of view

But the people all around

Aren’t a part of you

You hold your own thoughts

Within yourself, never letting go


And Heaven can weep

For the child with dreamless sleep

Like a river that overflows

Only you, God and Heaven knows

What you live for

What you give for

But they try to

Take it away


You’ve always been a dreamer

Of bizarre fantasies

You’ve never been a schemer

Of tragedies

But they never believe you

They try to deceive you

Try to take your mind away


And Heaven can weep

For the child with dreamless sleep

Like a river that overflows

Only you, God and Heaven knows

Only you can make them smile

Only you can tell them why

Only you can make them laugh

And, only you can make them cry

Only you, God and Heaven knows

What you live for

What you give for

But they try to

Take it away

Your words leap off the page and cry out "Where is my music?"
Singers would read your words and cry out "Where is the music?"
Only you, God, and Heaven knows.

Wonderful and wise write Andrea....these lines are so very true:

Only you, God and Heaven knows
What you live for
What you give for
But they try to
Take it away

Great writing!

It is the spirit within that survives the slings and arrows of misfortune. It is untouchable!
A poignant poem, Andrea, and one that reverberates around the gardens of our lives!
Well done - they can try to take it away but they will never succeed!
