If only I could stay and hide,

If only I could stay and hide ... Authored by Chuck Keys If only I could stay and hide, Inside a fragrant red rose, soft and true, Smooth as air, warm as the summers day, With no fear or wear and tear.

Stay and hide. I like hiding in my bed it's my soft, warm place. When I was a kid it was this tree in my front yard. The higher up I went the more I disappsred. Love this one Chuck.
