Written for my daughter Viola, with lyrics by our good friend Janiece Jaffe.
If I give you a legacy, would you see it's a rose?
If I give you a part of me to hold, to hold
if I give to you what you need
If I give to you would you need anymore? anymore of me?
I live as a part of you, I believe, I believe
In the rose that I give to you: be free: be free
Is there anything you could dream where I would not be on your side?
You'll always know I'm on your side
Carry on with all the music in you
All I am you will be there to hold
Carry on with all the beauty in you
Carry on with all that you can hold
If you bring all my love with you, could it be it's a rose?
If you bring all I know of you, I know I know
You will find a rose in your heart and will carry me in your heart
and you will know this heart of mine
