Before the weather got too cold
I hoped  And prayed youd come 
for the Imperial Rose had formed a bud, 
and I feared there Wouldnt be another one.

Teddy barked and barked when the doorbell Rang,
and when I went to see who was there, 
I saw it was you. (I thanked the Lord).
For he had heard my prayer. 

Our visit was short; its true. 
But Im grateful we saved the Rose, Arent you?
