The rose that I planted with such tender care
Is wilted and fading today
I’ll cherish the blossom that once was so fair
Like your love that’s gone far away.
It seems so unfair and hard to believe
That you took my dreams and were gone
Your reason for leavin’ my heart can’t conceive
But the tears have convinced me you’re gone
I stand all alone with a rose in my hand
Although it is withered and old
It’s all I have left with this faded gold band
And a memory I could never let go.
So dear if you’re mine give a thought to the past
Don’t worry for love comes and goes
My love for you was made, dear, to last
Your love bloomed and died like the rose
Your love bloomed and died like the rose.
