Raindrops And Roses

I never thought the day would come
A call that wilts flowers in the room
Words of sorrow that crushed my spirit
News that sent wolves to howl at the moon

This cut goes far deeper than the flesh
Straight to the heart with perfect aim
In time I recovered from this deep wound
But truth is I never really became the same

I wish I could talk to you just once more
Regrets become the topic of every thought
Sleepless nights are shadowed by memories
Recalling life lessons you unknowingly taught

Let the doves carry you away to eternal peace
Where the flowers bloom for you my friend
Raindrops and roses I leave for your memory
Rest well until I see you again
