Rose to Bloom

by Angela Dunley

Rose to Bloom - Sky to reach
Lessons of Hurt - Lessons to teach
Eyes of Tears - Heart of pain
Butterfly Wings - The Drops of rain
Curled up here all alone
Take the pain, make it gone
I can't believe this life is mine
Looking back, grasping the time
Scared to step into the change
Head & Heart let go of the rage
They never did break that special heart
That's bright and strong like a twinkling star
It's time to open up and let love come
Fill a home with Children that run
Staying strong, pushing clouds faraway
Happiness & love are finally here to stay.
