THE ROSE WILL GROW
The Rose Will Grow
by Donn Eagle
How can you trust Love, and be sure it will last?
We Gave our Hearts to others, many times in the past.
We shed many tears, and build many fears.
And now we're afraid to let our Hearts go.
Because of the pain we've come to know.
But if we are to Love again, we have to take the chance.
And trust our Hearts, our only guide, to find the true Romance.
So if we hide the Rose from the light, we'll never see it grow.
But if we plant it in the sun, we know the Rose will grown.
So tear down the Iron Gate you built so high and open up the door.
The Love you find may be the kind, that you've been searching for.
We know that deep within there is a special part.
And we know for love to live, there has to be a spark.
And when that spark, grows to a flame.
The Heart we gave is never the same.
The days begin and end with songs.
And that the New found love your Heart belongs.
You walk on clouds of fluffy white.
Knowing and trusting that your heart is right.
The Rose will grow and Love will grow.
And make a spectacular sight.
For all that see the Rose, will see the Petals bright.
THE BATHTUB TEST..............
It doesn't hurt to take a hard look at yourself from time to time, and this should help get you started. During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director what the criterion was which defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.
"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub."
"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."
"No." said the Director, "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?"
