Lemon Tea Rose

Lemon tea rose like a light in the dark
A shining beacon of a love about to start

Oh how you bloomed so brightly so fast
Little did I know it was not meant to last

For lemon tea rose you are not a symbol for me
You are a symbol of a love that will last eternity

A beacon of hope when it is gone
A light to remember when dark is upon
A marriage of love in this life and the next
An image of a union that was blessed

This symbol is yours not for me
It was a striking occurrence that I let myself believe
