    Without further context, it's hard to know exactly. I suspect it could have a figurative meaning in that the person is being lauded for something they've done or it could have a literal meaning wherein their lover has spread rose petals in a track leading to the bedroom [just saw this in the movie, "The Fugitive" with Harrison Ford.

    Or it could mean something else depending on the context.

    Roses act as a metaphor for life: after overcoming difficulty you will find inner harmony, union and happiness. Rose petals are scattered in front of a bride, or bridal couple, as they leave the ceremony. It is a pretty way of symbolising that the future will be filled with love.
