The Rose

The Rose - Bette Midler - YouTube


This is for someone I know, who is living in such darkness, that the light of love denied has wounded so greatly, they have lost their Self to the wiles of the false world, shunned by the Truth - 'It's the one who won't be taken who cannot seem to give And the soul, afraid of dying that never learns to live...'








Some say love, it is a river that drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razor that leaves your soul to bleed
Some say love, it is a hunger an endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower and you, it's only seed




It's the heart, afraid of breaking that never learns to dance
It's the dream, afraid of waking that never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken who cannot seem to give
And the soul, afraid of dying that never learns to live




When the night has been too lonely and the road has been too long
And you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed that with the sun's love, in the spring becomes the rose




“Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it.” -Luke 9:23-24
