Through the grapevine I heard that you had taken ill,
But I still stayed away working hard - untill,
I heard that you suddenly passed away in pain,
Heartbroken I fell to my knees sobbing in the pouring rain.
I had been away for many a year,
Now I'm coming home to shed more than a tear,
Although we were many miles apart,
Rose, my darling you were always in my heart.
I will never forgive myself for staying away,
Trying to make more money for us on a rainy day,
Now I'm bringing home-a red Rose bud for you,
Full of my tears and not of the morning dew.
This idea came from a painting I bought
from a great friend -who not long ago passed away.
God bless You.
