As Strong As A Rose

Dedicated to a Strong Woman, my mother.

My Mom is one tough lady. She has always had lots of energy during my growing up. She is youthful in mind and no matter how her body feels, she is ambitious and strong. That is why I wrote this poem. As beautiful as she is, I wanted to let everyone know how I saw her, even during the toughest times. I would like to dedicate this poem to her. Even now she is older and she has to take it easy, she continues to keep a peaceful mind.


A fragrant flower
This rose petal pleasure
So soft
And precious
Is her form.

A delicate masterpiece
In a field
Waving through
The Breeze.

And standing as one
Her look is
So fragile
But her
Vine is so strong
Could ever
Break it.

Even in the
Strong gusts
Of wind
After a
Winter storm.

This fragrant
Beautiful Rose
Will never
