THE GARDEN OF ROSES / Poem by Joanna Svensson

Poem by Joanna Svensson



I send you a picture
To prove my love to you
The picture of the roses
That I took in a garden
In Karlskrona in a garden
That wasn’t mine
Oh, no – not mine
It was not mine at all
Not mine at all

Oh, but I wished
I wished that it was
‘Cause I sensed it so strongly
That these roses that there grew
Had a fragrance of love
Of love just for you

So I caught it and sent you
The most beautiful picture
It felt only mine
Like my true love for you!

This picture will always
Yes, always be mine!
Though the garden of roses
Belongs to another
Yet in another time
I felt it belonged to me

But the picture I took
In a Karlskrona garden
That bright sunny morning
Will always remain

I will always worship
My dear love for you
Our hearts and our security
All my life time is with you!

Swenstorp, Sweden
