    The man I love
    Gave me
    A black rose

    Now my sister said
    The nerve of him to give u
    A black rose

    But

    I saved the black rose
    It never wilted

    I watched the black rose
    It's pedals never fell

    The black rose seemed so unnatural

    My sister's man gave her
    A white lotus

    My sister said the nerve of him to give her
    A white lotus

    She threw it away

    I took the white lotus
    It opened and closed

    I watched the white lotus
    It lived and it died

    I took the white lotus
    and put it at my man's feet

    The white lotus seemed so natural

    My sister wanted neither flower
    Because she couldn't understand

    that the

    Black Rose

    was a symbol of

    The eternal courage of Black Love

    The white lotus speaks volumes of pure change
    And is quite worthy of his feet

    The white lotus perfects it self
    So
    In eternal black Love creation is complete
