I Asked For Roses

Written by: Cynthia Alvez

Sweet concord mellow wine
Loosening my tongue
As I tell all
To all
About you, the volcano erupting
Into my life,
Storming verbally
Crushing my heart...
But I don't cry,
Not me!
Sweet concord mellow wine quiets me
As as you claim you are mine
I ask, "Lord why me?"
"I asked for roses and you sent me a tree!"
