My Rose of Sharon

Spellbound by the twilight at sunset over the Pacific Ocean
true love is such a powerful emotion

Walking on the wet warm sand
while holding on to each others hand

The waves keeping time with the beating of my heart
when one would end another one would start

It was a magical time
we were in sync with life’s rhythm and rhyme

Those days were picture postcard perfect
glorious in every aspect

Every night was exciting as the 4th of July
the look in your eye was as dazzling as fireworks in the sky

My Rose of Sharon why did you have to go
oh my dear I did care for you so
