Rose Decay

So he's fixing to
Bend the knee  
Saw him on the
Sidewalk with the ring  
 
We're the blooming rose garden  
Hurry up before the night darkens  
 
Go ahead grab the  
Clippers and clip away  
We don't mind  
Our rose display  
 
Love to see your smiling faces  
Happiness for crystal vases  
It's okay we'll be the rose display  
 
We saw you sneaking out  
The other night  
Finally came back  
Glad you're alright  
 
Go ahead grab  
Your chainsaw  
And cut away  
We don't mind  
Our rose decay  
 
Price to pay for your mistakes  
Arrange me in your crystal cage  
Bouquet absorbed sunray  
 
We're the blooming rose garden  
Season's changing ready to harden  
 
Price to pay for  
Your mistakes  
Go ahead grab  
Your chainsaw  
And cut away  
 
It's okay cause  
We'll be back in the  
Month of May

I have a white jasmine vine on one side of my sidewalk and a rose bush on the other.
The vine is still breathtaking but my rose bush bloomed its last rose today.
Made me sad.

Thinking about all the times I snipped it and put on my kitchen table. Sometimes we need to prune and other times maybe we should just let it bloom and wilt in its own time.

FYI - listening to The Eagles - In The City
It's on the soundtrack of the movie The Warriors. Love that movie. Classic gold!!!!
