The Man in Black….

Posted by on January 20, 2008

He loved like everyone in the world should. It is pure, it’s beautiful. His love for his wife transcended even death. Within 3 months of her death (almost to the day) his heart finally “broke.” He put out an amazing album in that time to say Goodbye to the world and sing a tribute to his loving wife. It’s so vulnerable and perfect. It makes me cry listening to it.

Not many of my friends (blog readers) are country fans but I may try to change that. Yes, you are reading right…I’m putting my love for country music out in the blogosphere for everyone to read. Not to worry, my heart still belongs to other genres but certain country is good.

No one can refute the brillant-ness that was Johnny Cash.

So yea. I just wanted to spread the word about the song so others can hear it (who normally might not). The words may not be all that moving to anyone else but me, but sit down and listen to this man sing to his dead wife. It’s hard not to be moved. You can hear it all in his voice.

Rose of my Heart – Johnny Cash

We’re the best partners this world’s ever seen,
Together we’re as close as can be.
But sometimes it’s hard to find time in between,
To tell you what you mean to me.

You are the rose of my heart,
You are the love of my life.
A flower not faded nor falling apart,
If you’re tired, rest your head on my arm.
Rose of my heart.

When sorrow holds you in it’s arms of clay,
It’s rain drops that fall from your eyes.
Your smile is the sun come to earth for a day,
You brighten my blackest of skies.

You are the rose of my heart,
You are the love of my life.
A flower not faded nor falling apart,
If you’re cool, let my love make you warm.
Rose of my heart.

So hard times or easy times, what do I care,
There’s nothing I’d change if I could.
The tears and the laughter are things that we share,
Your hand in mine makes it good.
You are the rose of my heart,
You are the love of my life.
A flower not faded nor falling apart,
If you’re cool, let my love make you warm.
Rose of my heart.

You are the rose of my heart,
You are the love of my life.
A flower not faded nor falling apart,
If you’re cool, let my love make you warm.
Rose of my heart.

You are the rose of my heart,
You are the love of my life.
A flower not faded nor falling apart,
You’re my harbor in life’s restless storm.
Rose of my heart.

Rose of my heart.”
