There are no roses without thorns

The Language Of Roses .. !!

There are no roses without thorns
nor is there pain that can not be borne.
Between love and duty sometimes torn-
there are no roses without thorns.

There’s no promise of tomorrow
here in this world there will be sorrow.
Our time on earth we only borrow-
there’s no promise of tomorrow.

There is no pleasure without pain
and blue skies today precede the rain.
Life’s daily struggles our faith doth strain-
there is no pleasure without pain.

There are no roses without thorns
nor is there a loss we don’t still morn.
Between love and duty sometimes torn-
there are no roses without thorns.
