    Alone, I'm a wildflower at heart
    Unfound, uncut and untamed
    Lonely and lost, almost afraid to be found
    But free and very me

    With him though, I'm a garden rose
    Tended, watered and trimmed
    Cared for and yet so unsure
    So easily plucked and withered

    And I can never understand which is worse; being lonely or tamed
