Two Roses Blossom Where One Once Bloomed

The rose has died A slow and painful death! Poison has melted it through. The weeds c r e p t ever tighter R o u n d To c h o k e This delicate rose. Left shriveled And scarred, The leaves are crisp And the petals have F a l l e n... Is there no way This rose could have been protected? Finally, The weeds have been detected! Observing this d e a t h Has brought Great sorrow, Great pain, Has shattered this fragile heart! But now they can be happier Can start anew, Yes, Now that they're apart... And what is it This fragile heart observes? Yes. There is new growth! T w o roses b l o s s o m Where o n e once b l o o m e d. So nothing's really doomed! Yes. Those two hearts Have made new starts. Now h a p p i n e s s fills their way. They face the l i g h t of future Purged of the darkness of yesterday. Starting anew is what they've done In the wake of separation. And now the partnerships they have Are b e t t e r than they ever imagined. And this once broken, Fragile heart Can mend No longer saddened.
