Amanda's Garden   (words and music by Bill Pere)

In Amanda's garden is a solitary rose
She tends it tenderly with nurture as it grows
She feels the sun
The only warmth she knows

In Amanda's garden is a solitary tear
Lost amid the rainfall, the cries no one will hear
Drift upon the wind,
Only to disappear

     In Amanda's garden
     In the winter, earth will harden
     With the gentle touch of springtime
     Flowers flourish and can grow....

In Amanda's garden is a solitary stone
A stoic, silent memory of a life lived all alone
People see the thorns
But never see the rose....
