Poems by LLS - Roses, Beauty and Strength
Soft velvety petals curling along the edge;
Spiked leaves etched around the end;
Strong straight stems studded with thorns;
Fashion the flower called a rose, my friend.
Petal softness is for the times
When somthing wondrous occurs;
Such as a special anniversary
Or a baby arrives to coo new words.
The spikes of the leaves denote
The bumps along life's road
To remind us there is a tomorrow
When an illness enters our abode.
The mighty stem with it's thorns
Prick a finger so we remember
the endurance and pain of loss
When a loved one crosses over.
The rose has intrepid meaning
In the winding pathway of life.
For when you acquire a rose,
You hold the grace to endure strife.
