Teardrop On A Rose (Wayne S Morgan) video

While strolling through a lovely garden,
As day was drawing to a close,
My eyes beheld a tragic story,
I saw a teardrop on a rose.

It should have been a tear of gladness,
But deep inside sorrow shows;
The trusting heart had just been broken,
I saw a teardrop on a rose.

A sobbing tear that follows parting,
Holds all the pain that sorrow knows;
The false goodbye, a life is shattered,
Now lies the story on the rose.

The tear will dry, the rose will wither,
When spring and winter comes and goes;
I loved, I lost, my story's ended,
With just a teardrop on a rose.
