In the lonely garden of my life
Daises, Magnolias, white Lilies
and Carnations of many colors.
But even with all that beauty
my garden was still gloomy,
it was not there the Rose
that I cultivated in my dreams
as the sunlight that warms us.
Many long days passed by
and to the Gardener I asked
to find the white flower
that would enlighten my life.
I walked down so many roads,
I visited a lot of rich mansions
but I sadly could never find
the flower of my Illusions.
while my anguish was hurting me
I could hear from far above
a sweet and celestial melody.
It was an Angel proclaiming
among perfumes and flowers
the existence of a beautiful Rose
the very Rose of my dreams.
Since that blessed day in my Garden
there are Joy and Happiness
Daisies, Magnolias, White Lilies
and on a Sacred Altar my White Rose.
