A rose for your love, for your love, a red rose. It is the rose that I keep near my side by my bed. It is the rose of my heart moist with tears I have shed. Petals like pearls in deep ruby red, like the promise of May in a vase near my bed. Made of burnished white lead with an inscription well said: A rose from above to remind you you’re loved. It is the rose of my heart in a deep scarlet red, in a beautiful vase near my side by my bed.
