For The Rose That Won't Return

by Victoria Hunter

Didn't I love you  from one end  to another
exactly how  you were created
so wild and wanting  all the attention  all the time

And weren't we together  constantly
moving in sync  all the time
and can you remember  how I tried to control you
hushed the cry  of your rusty chain links
and bent you forward   and down in half
to see how far  you can leave me  without breaking

Oh love  I want to wake up  inside you again
and put my dreams  in you again
I want to fly again with you  into tomorrow
I want to find you  in the early morning  cold
and tangled around yourself
I want to climb inside your soul  and wipe away
the puddle of cold rain  in your heart
