Roses for Valentines

A dozen roses did you say...
none will give me even one this day...
so hidden I have to stay...
as my Lord does say...

we go to churches mosques and temples to pray
Oh God come to my house and stay

but now when he has summoned me
for ever
tell me why my legs and feet stagger
God is not going to use a dagger
makes me now wonder
where does he really reside
now why from him we long to hide
why can't we with him abide

we have on the earth
had a long ride
God in love astride
let us now abide...

My eyes fail me
my ears betray
no one wants to have me
come near so near any way

why on your Valentine I shower
'tis rose and rosy flower

let my fragrance spread
far and wide
on this earth I have had my freedom and pride
Lets now with Gods wishes Abide...

Heartfelt and truth expressed with a deep sadness. Been there.
