36 "A Special Poem"

Roses whisper love.
Roses whisper love.

Listen to whispers

 

Listen To a Whispering Rose

 

There’s a story about whispering roses.

They don’t have eyes, mouths or noses.

But they know love from the start,

They know true love comes from the heart.

They are given at a special time,

And can make a lady’s heart chime.

If her heart listens really close,

They will say what she already knows.

They whisper, “He will love you forever,

And our love will always endeavor.”

Whispering roses are really smart,

They feel what’s in someone’s heart.

So, if you hear a whispering rose,

Listen real close to its prose.

Greg

A rose by any other name would still smell as sweet. You draw a very lovely picture in the mind.

Hi Lela, Thank you. I have only in the last few years been able to put my feelings into words and even moreso, on "paper", so-to-speak. Greg

Hi 34th BG, Thank you. The one thing that is keeping us apart is her mother's illness. Until that changes we will love each other from afar. We have made it through tougher ordeals than this, we will make it through this too, I know that in my heart. And yes, I do consider myself very lucky to still have her in my life. Thank you for the concern. Greg

Ah - I understand. "Been there, done that" as they say.

She wouldn't be worth your time if she wasn't doing what she's doing.

God bless you ALL... 34th

Hi again 34th BG, thank you. That's one of the many reasons I love her, she has a heart as big as the world and everybody else comes before her. And thank you for the quote. It doesn't matter what play, the thought from you is what counts. Greg
