My darling rose – by James
My darling rose
I see you when I wake at night,
a fitful sadness despair through my plight.
I see you in the mirrors at home,
we always played there now you roam.
In my heart you always pure,
you’ll touch me always and help me endure.
A screaming pain that pulses through me,
Oh Lord please hold my child in gentle lee.
My ship is sailing a rudderless stave,
your smiling face with grace it gave,
my joy to have a little girl,
your memory always a welcome burl.
Isabella my sweet, my darling rose,
I want your spirit to always know.
That daddy will love you forever be,
until I see you with all your glee.
