Roses are red
You are black, blue and bruised
Is love ever painful, or we are?

Roses are red
You are Black, I am White
Why should love have any colour?

Roses are red
But some comes in pink and white
Why is love never straightforward?

Roses are red
Then it turns brown and withered away
Why can't love last forever?

see my girl

see my girl

see the stars

perfect with no scars
see the sky
beautifully sparse, and so high
see my girl
unequal to any pearl

see the sea
endless, wild and so free
feel the wind
same, with its own mind
see my girl
my head she tips to burl

see my eyes
it radiates her, now wise
feel my palms
it has been schooled, now calm
see my girl
I now fair better to any earl

see the clouds
going grey like the crowds
feel my pulse
pacing faster than any horse
see my girl
always there to break my fall

Let's life a stormy sea
And its wind a turmoil be
I will fly and float away
I will swim and sail away.

Transformed dreams and hopes like butterflies
to fly so far like clouds above, 
I see them soar, wing free 
my heart at last will cry no more, 
My soul released I soar in love.

I can see obstacles my stepping stones 
And treasures like sea pebbles 
Glistering and heralding my glory
As I walk on waters of victory. 

I'm a butterfly cascading high
Over slime, stain and shame
Let the mud sling a colourful rays
In grandiose display I rest my case.
