Most of our lives are a series of images, they pass us by like towns on a highway. Sometimes a moment stuns us as it happens and we know that this instant is more than a fleeting image. We know that this moment, every part of it, will live on forever

She sat alone, In the rain
She laughed as the wind blew
10 years it was going to be
Today, she knew

Beautiful hair and ivory skin
Eyes that glittered with tears
She was the bride of his love
She loved him still, though he was no more

Walking in the rain
Silver rose in her hand
She entered the garden of rose
Where thier story had begun
Where it was going to close

In the middle lay her love
One with leaf and earth
Adorned with silver roses
That bloomed once a moon

A rose for every year
Ten roses there were true
Ten years had gone by
Since thier love had blossomed too

She looked like death, yet smiled like the sun
As she walked towards where he lay
Legs gave way, and on her knees she crawled
He waited for her lying still like life on a pause

As she fell by the grave
The thorn pierced her heart
Bled over silver rose, red
The garen and her, become one

Soon she too fell asleep
To never wake again
The last words she breathed were this
My love, I am now, forever yours to keep.
