The honor of "One Rose"

The honor of "One Rose"

                          “Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come.”

                                                               ~ Song of Songs 2

“Bring me one rose”

"Bring me one rose while I’m alive"

A small request when you arrive

Who can know the gifting power?

Love is spoken by one flower

One sweet rose for one sweet Mother

From a son or from a another

With one rose you show you care

With one rose much love you share

Lovely colors … roses wear

Thoughtful meanings that they bear

Yellow for a faithful friend

Faith you have … but cannot lend

Pink … your love will never end

Red as scarlet LOVE words penned

With one rose … a message send

With one act … a heart can mend

Precious kindness … time allow

LOVE is shown with one rose now

Loving acts reflect His Grace

Lovely visits face-to-face

Knowing that I live alone

Nice to hear your voice by phone

That you come and hold my hand,

Demonstrates you understand

Might you say a prayer with me?

Prayer sets my burdens free.

When this earthly life I leave

Please do not for me then grieve

God’s love & grace I do believe

Eternal life I will receive

"Bring me one rose while I’m alive"

Once in heaven, I arrive

In Christ's Presence … I will thrive

You and I are saved by Grace

We should all His Love embrace.

Do not rush to my resting place

The wind will there your tears erase

Though loving heart & hands have laid

Fragrant roses upon my grave

"Bring me one rose while I’m alive"

A grave with flowers … death can’t hide

A life well-lived … bears love inside

I wrote these words to help you see

With these words I close my plea

Bring one rose from you … to me

~ In His Light, Fay Vietmeier ~

This poem is in honor of a loving son, John Falvo … in memory of his mother who often made the request: “Bring me one rose while I’m alive”

And in loving memory of my “Mom” who loved flowers … especially roses.

“One rose” can be a small, thoughtful gift or perhaps a random act of kindness ... lovely to bestow.

"You can complain a rose has thorns or rejoice that thorns have roses." ~ Pablo Picasso 

“Flowers leave some of their fragrance in the hand that bestows them.” ~Chinese proverb

I write: “In His Light”~ Fay Vietmeier

If my words make you think … Great ;~)

As “iron-sharpens-iron” … I enjoy bantering with other BEES … your feedback is as “honey”

A glimpse of the “Bee” called “me” ;~)

My caring nature makes me an advocate. My curious nature makes me a “queen of questions” … but gifted with the ability to listen ;~) I am a woman of deep faith, a blessed mother, a voracious reader, a blossoming writer, a grateful person, and a lover of beauty … I treasure family, true friendships and my loyal clients ... enjoy traveling, learning, good movies, good wine and golf. I’m a “heart-to-heart” communicator.

The colour blindness is pure poetic license, Fay.

Smiles are (red) read
Goodness is (white) said
Color is carried in your heart
... and your head ;~)

(I did not know that Ken ... perhaps this helps you see things others miss ;~)

Roses are grey,
Violets are black,
I’m colour blind,
So cut me some slack.
