THE ROSE GARDEN
(In memory of a friend)
 
SHE STOOD IN SILENCE IN THE GARDEN,
AND TOUCHED THE PRETTY PINK ROSE,
SHE TENDERLY FONDLED THE PEDALS,
AND HELD THEM TO HER NOSE.
SWEET FRAGRANCE FILLED THE AIR,
AS MEMORIES FILLED HER MIND,
FOR JUST A FLEETING MOMENT,
SHE WAS IN ANOTHER TIME.
PINK ROSES WERE HIS FAVORITE,
HE BROUGHT HER ONE EACH DAY,
ROMANCE FILLED HER WORLD,
FROM THE WORDS HE WOULD SAY.
STROLLING THROUGH THE GARDEN,
HE WOULD PICK A ROSE OF PINK,
PLACE IT IN HER GOLDEN HAIR,
AND CARESS HER BEAUTIFUL CHEEK.
THEY WOULD PASS AWAY THE HOURS,
IN THE GARDEN HE HAD MADE,
THEY WOULD WALK THE STONE PATH,
SHE REMEMBERED EACH ONE HE LAID.
HE WOULD SHOWER HER WITH PRESENTS,
AND PAMPER HER FOR HOURS,
OFTEN HE WOULD TELL HER,
SHE WAS PRETTIER THAN ALL THE FLOWERS..
HE TAUGHT HER TO TEND THE ROSES,
AND PICK A FEW EACH DAY,
HE MADE IT LOOK SO EASY,
IT WAS LIKE A GAME THEY PLAYED.
THEN ONE DAY IN THE LOVE SEAT,
HER WORLD CAME TUMBLING DOWN,
HE SAID GOD NEEDS A NEW GARDNER,
FOR THE FLOWERS IN HIS CLOUDY GROUND.
FOR A WHILE TIME STOOD STILL,
SHE SELDOM WENT OUTSIDE,
SHE SHUT OUT ALL THE WORLD,
SEEKING A PLACE TO HIDE.
HOURS TURNED INTO DAYS,
DAYS TURNED INTO WEEKS,
IT HAS BEEN A YEAR, SINCE
THEY SAT IN THEIR LOVE SEAT.
THE GARDEN NOW FILLS HER TIME,
AS SHE TENDS THE PRETTY FLOWERS,
SHE SMILES AT A BEAUTY RAINBOW,
AFTER A GENTLE SPRING SHOWER.
THE ROBIN SINGS HIS LOVE SONG,
AND THERE'S THE BUSY HONEY BEES,
SHE FEEL THE WARM SUN ON HER FACE,
THE WIND WHISPERS THRU THE TREES.
SHE CARESSES THE PRETTY ROSES,
AND HOLDS THEM TO HER FACE,
THE FRAGRANCE BRINGS BACK MEMORIES,
OF ANOTHER TIME IN THIS PLACE.
IF YOU FIND THAT SPECIAL SOMEONE,
AND YOUR LOVE FOR THEM IS STRONG,
THEN CHERISH EVERY MOMENT,
CAUSE GOD DOESN'T TELL YOU HOW LONG,
YOU WILL HAVE TO MAKE YOUR MEMORIES,
WITH THE PERSON THAT YOU LOVE,
YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT MOMENT,
THEY'LL BE CALLED TO HEAVEN ABOVE.
