Some people want to be the Sun to brighten your day, but I'd rather be the moon to shine on you in your darkest hour.

This rose I give will not endure
Soon it will wither away
The blood red petals, once so vibrant
Will fade to a stolid gray

The verdant leaves will slowly die
And fall off one by one
Slowly crashing to the ground
'Till all the leaves are gone

This precious rose I give to you
Will not forever bloom
For the lovely fragile bud
Will someday face its doom

So I give not just a rose
That slowly wilts and dies
I give as well a part of me
That lives for all of time

For though the rose's petals fall
And though its leaves turn gray
My heart that I will give to you
Will never fade away
