“The Rose to the Grave” by Casalis

As the gates
Behind me close
I lift my hand to give
The rose
Over to the memory
To the grave in which you
And if only for a little while
The precious rose
Will give some life
To a place where all is gone
Till it too gracefully dies
On your lap
In your hand
The rose will show
What I can't say
A way to give my love away
To you the only way I can
