The Roses

Easter rose

Their colors brought infinite joy as they were cared for with pride
The thorns did not lesson their beauty; not one delicate petal was denied

Red velvet symbolized eternal love forever nested in their hearts
Carrying them on a cloud of nine so they could almost touch the stars

Their presence, bending towards the sun, bestowed radiance to the hours
The fragility of their petals revealed true beauty in these flowers

The elegance of their appeal interlaced in the fabric of their love
Now pure white roses hold true an enduring devotion in Heaven above

Last Chance

Rose 2014

It’s almost time to
let sun take its curtain call
one last chance to shine

(I’m a little premature, as the sun will shine 
for awhile longer before rain will begin,
but the garden is changing

and soon, seasons will, too.)  🙂

A Very Special Rose

rose


Many flowers live in gardens
Their colors add light to our days
but one bud shines brighter than others
It’s special in so many ways

 This flower radiates strength
and our world is a better place
with all the love that is offered
in it’s very warm embrace

This is dedicated to my
very special blogging friend,
Granbee,
also known as Rose.

She hasn’t blogged in a long time
and I miss her.
I know I’m not alone,
as she is missed by many.
She remains in our prayers
and we hope to be graced
by her presence again.

We love you, Rose ♥

In Loving Memory of Mom

When I think of Mom, I think pink
Cherry blossoms in the spring
I think elegance and grace
and I envision her beautiful face
Her smile would warm others for miles
When I think of Mom
I’m saddened to know
I can’t call her and hear her “hello”
but I can see her
clearly as the garden from my window
and each day she graces my memories
while my love for her grows
