"Life is not about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself."

There once was a rose
In a garden of hope
And she sang us her beautiful songs out loud

That rose, she was perfect
But she didn’t know it
And the seed that she sprouted from was proud

One day that rose
She was ready to go
But the garden wasn’t ready to say goodbye

She left like a raindrop
The world came to a stop
She cleared up that blue morning sky

The world it seemed calm
We knew all along
That her roots would be with us wherever

If you listen closely
You can hear her preach softly
The words that once brought us together

The sun, it shone bright
Although it didn’t seem right
That a rose should be taken so quickly

But her love will take flight
Through the day and the night
And it’ll sing to our garden forever.
