Winds of March Lyrics

I covered you with roses, soft as an evening breeze, I covered you with love, as the wind rushed through the trees. I covered you with joy, to make your lifetime big and bright. You are my child, you came like the winds of March, with all your...

    I've always interpreted as the strong, protective bond one has with their child whim is just as new to their lives as vice versa for the child, and the great abundance of love, that they have brought to each others lives.

    The first stanza is not listed. It is....
    I covered you in roses
    Like the stars at night.
    I covered you with love
    Like a blanket on a cold winter’s night
    I covered in joy
    To make your lifetime big and bright.

    The first two lines are about laying a grave blanket of roses on a grave. This is a song about the loss of a child and how the parents made this child’s lifetime, although short, big and bright.

    This song is so about the loss of a child. If you have ever lost a child, there is absolutely no doubt. The unbearable sadness in the first part of the song and the chaos and agony you felt when you were told your child is dead,and inside everyday for the rest of your life, in the jam at the end. Trust me, the person that wrote it, lost a child.

    This is a song about the loss of a child and how the writer loved him/her. The child was a powerful force in the writer's life because "the winds of march" are physically powerful.

    You would cover a child in roses if he/she is in a coffin. The rest of the first verse is in the past tense. It's morbid to sing this song to a living child.

    I used to sing it to my now 16 year old daughter when she was a baby. To me, it's a song of a mother's unconditional, undying love for her child. <3

    A man lost his sweet child whom he loves so dearly; he will be forever greatful of the time he spent with his child. "I covered you with roses" and "you are my child, you came like the winds of March...you made my life big and bright..." Heartbreaking, isn't it? It makes me cry every time...!!!! )":

    Neal Schon's father, Matt Schon, is listed as one of the song writers. I believe this song can be interpreted as being about a father's love of his child.
