When sorrow comes in summer days,
Roses bloom in vain.
Even when the sun is shining
The day is filled with rain.

There no longer is joy in simple things
The day has no end in sight.
But the hardest thing to deal with
Is the lonliness at night.

I turn to find you no longer there
I just yearn to hear your voice.
But you were taking away from me
And I wasn't even given a choice.

When sorrow comes in summer days,
Roses bloom in vain.
But I don't see the beauty in them
All I feel is the pain.
