I look at you in the pale light of the moon

Still you glow and before I know it, you’re grown

Time passes by way to soon

You are a fragile rose waiting to bloom


Oh sweet Emily

Your heart is like a fire it grows and grows

I am afraid to blink ‘cause a minute passes & I dont know where it goes

I treasure you for who you are

Oh sweet angel, you are my heart

Here’s a rose for Emily

None so gentle and pretty


Before I know it, you will be grown and gone

It sit here holding on

For a brief moment, I let time slip

I realize, it’s just a step

It’s your future God holds in his grip


Oh sweet angel mine

I have one wish, to freeze in time

Here’s a rose for Emily

For none is so gentle and sweet
