And there were roses

And there were roses

A Poem by An owl on the moon
"

A fragrant life well lived...

"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That first tender cry

Fresh sound in a fresh world

Covered in blood and wrapped in love

And there were roses

Pink fragrance of new life…

 

Sweet sixteen smiles

First kiss blushes

Movies and magic and starry skies

And there were roses

Yellow blooms in the hues of joy…

 

She wore white-laced summer

And he wore her kisses on his lips

Like a badge of honor

And there were roses

Like alabaster flames of devotion…

 

Her smile lingered

Amidst well-woven lines of life

His hand firmly held in hers

And there were roses

50 crimson blooms…

 

A tender peace lays soft

Her hands draped across her chest

Teardrops like pearls strewn down

And there were roses

Scented of heaven and angel wings…

WOW ~ such tender caresses speaking of the life of a loved one ~ every line a step closer to LIFE with roses resembling love and devotion freely given, until the day where roses "Scented of heaven and angel wings…"
kept blooming forever !
You touched my heart, Craig, with your special understanding of LOVE and LIFE, mingled with sorrow, yet upheld by joy !!
Beautiful

This is reallllly beautiful. I don't even know how to express how I feel about this, It gave me goosebumps. I just love "and there were roses." There is something so simple but SO beautiful about that. Thanks for sharing!
