A single red rose you would bring to me,
Itís significance was always very clear to see.
A single red rose, for a single love,
A love over the years we both grew to be so proud of.
Music and moments only we could share,
The love I had longed for long ago filled by my prayer.
Of a man who would hold me and love me forever,
Always beside me no matter the weather.
Through the good times and bad times to always be there,
No love like ours, there would be none to compare.
No one would ever come between us or tear us apart,
This was true love right from the start.
When you came along this dream of mine,
You brought with you a love I had always hoped to find.
Every Friday on payday when you came home to me,
In your hand another single red rose for me to see.
Over the years those lovely visions still come to my mind,
Of our two hearts now together forever entwined.
Sealed by a single red rose brought by my true love,
A love sent long ago to me from heaven above.
