An Oak And A Rose
Within me stands a solid oak
Who’s roots' an anchor for my soul
On who’s limb I stand, though never broke
You’ll never let me go
At your base a red rose grows
Soft petals fall upon the snow
A love I should never have known
A seed so carelessly sewn
My heart completely torn in two
A love for her, a love for you
Deep within my flesh her thorns
Have bridled all I do
O let me stand beneath your shade
Can I but find some sense in this?
Can I bear the trial I’ve made
That’s wrought my dire distress?
Two masters I could never serve,
To hate the one or love the other
Neither one do I deserve
O the heartbreak of a lover
Can I love the rose forever
Without my soul enslaved?
Can I love the oak forever
Serving far beyond the grave?
