The Rose, written by Amanda McBroom and made famous by Bette Midler

Some say, “Love. It is a river
That drowns the tender reed”
Some say, “Love. It is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed”
Some say, “Love. It is a hunger
An endless aching need”
I say, “Love. It is a flower
And you its only seed”

It’s the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance
It’s the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance
It’s the one who won’t be taken
Who cannot seem to give
And the soul afraid of dyin’
That never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed that with the sun’s love

In the spring becomes the rose

Love this song! It’s on the playlist I’ve put together for the next three books. It’s a trilogy of sorts, or they’re all connected in the way the stories from the movie ‘Bad Times At The El Royale’ are connected. I love that movie! That’s what I’m attempting with these three stories, The Two Groomsmen, Until Death, and Experiences, Inc.,. We’ll see if I can make what’s in my head match up to what I produce.

OCAAT 2 was much harder, took a lot longer to finish than I thought. It’s with the editor again.

    • I wanted to scrap it…so many times. . I’m glad I didn’t either. I learned a lot from writing it. Hope it meets with your approval, lol.

    • I wish I had a specific time to tell you. I do not. This year for sure, November at the earliest, December the latest is my best guess.
