To the Tune.. The Rose

Josephine Duthie
Aberdeen, Scotland
2003

Like a flower a child should blossom
Safe within a world of care,
Never lend them to the stranger
Who will strip their futures bare.

If we take the snow in winter
And the sun that warms the air,
Mix them with the clouds of heaven
Will you send our children there.

Like a flower she gives us beauty
Like a stem he turns her head,
Pluck them from the perfect picture
Then there's only ghosts instead.

If we take ...

Like a flower a child should flourish
Growing stronger day by day,
Take the life that flows inside them
And the sunshine fades away.

If we take ...
