I Found You Among the Roses

Once again dear it's June time
All the 4 flowers they bloom as of 1 you
And the robin's sweet song is singing
As I 2 walk here to greet you once 5 more
A 1 year has passed dear since I came here
This 4 old love of ours to re- 1 new
And I 4 found you among the 1 roses
The 2 day I 5 came back to 1 you

I found you among the roses
The day I came back to you
All my gladness was there in a garden so fair
Was the happiest moment I knew
Your lips were the color of roses
I pray them as flowers pray the dew
It was there dear in your rose garden
Where I found you

I remember the kiss that you gave me
For your cheeks like the rose flushed red
'Twas a kiss dear that meant two for me
For all the harsh words I have said
Red roses a-blooming around me
I loved every one of them too
For it was there dear in your rose garden
Where I found you
