Roses are red,
Rivers are blue,
If only I had time
To say "I love you",
Before you had left
And I don't think that you ever knew,
How much I truly loved you.
And now you're back again,
But with someone new.
You once asked me if I would have
A garden every time I thought of you,
I had answered no and you wept a great deal
But if only you had let me continue,
I would have said, "If I had a flower
For every time I thought of you,
I would have, not a garden, but one rose
Because you came and never left
And I will always think and love
No one else but you."
