Black roses

a kiss on the way to work... 
   as the morning birds chirp... 
you say a little prayer, as what its worth 

coffee,cream,two sugars, to get your day going... 
   good hair, beautiful make up, you cant stop glowing 

you check your rear view miriors,as you turn your ignition on... 
   you put your car in reverse,listening to your favorite song 

you honk at your neighbors,as they softly wave bye... 
  you think to yourself, i have the greatest life 

you get to work and there's roses on your desk... 
  attached was a note that you, patiently read 

"your lovely,then a rose bush garden that blooms in the spring" 
"so i handpick them all, my love, my life, my everything" 

at that very moment you feel so alone... 
   so you rush through your day and can't wait to get home 

five o clock comes and you rush out the door... 
   your so nervous and unpatient, your keys fall to the floor 

you stop at a light and the light stays red... 
   as you turn to your left, theres a gun to your head 

she had a choice to take the express way, but the backroad was faster... 
   in just one sec she was caught in a terrible disaster 

he shot her in the head and stole her purse... 
   for just ten dollars her life was what it's worth 

the guy eventually got caught, 
   and i want you all to know this 
he needed the money just to buy his wife, some roses!!!!
