OCTOBER ROSES
(Linda Allen)

You say you are sorry for the youth that you lack
For the sag of your breasts, for the bend in your back
For your hair turning grey and the tears that now flow
For the choices you made such a long time ago

CHORUS:
Spring roses are lovely, they make my heart sing
And in summer the roses sweet memories bring
But I most need the rose when the bitter winds call
October roses are the fairest of all (x2)

As a maid you were lovely, your cheeks bloomed so red
And you gave your heart freely, too freely, you said
As a woman full grown you knew passion and strife
And a gentle heart torn with the thorns of your life (CHO)

Now you're growing older, sometimes you feel done
But your strong roots still guide you, you'll still find the sun
For you blossom with wisdom and courage and care
You're the fairest of roses that bloom anywhere (CHO)
