They Will Never know

Written by: dave archuletta

She was beauty wrapped in the red of a rose
As each petal unfurled
A heart sinking, a bit more of her essence flowed 
Ageless - the time, the years in her world
A sweet that i have since known and her eyes had always showed

My life, my future wife chose
On our darkest night stilled
I cried
The plight of the dying of my rose
Her heart his confusion will never know
