A rose can say I love you and want you to be mine,
A rose can say I thank you for being so very kind,
A rose can say congratulations, whatever the occasion may be,
A rose can say I miss you and wish you were here with me,
My roses are fading one by one
They no longer feel the warm evening sun.
There's no blue bird on my window sill,
But I can still hear the call of the Whip O WIll
