As The Beauty of the Rose*

When wrapped in the light
of the golden sun
The rose opens its
petals with love
To drink in the warmth
and care that
God has given
Starting as a young bud
it grows
into the beauty of
the rose
Rejoicing in the life
it is living

Love is as the rose
It begins as a smile
a look, or a gentle hello
When nourished with the
warmth of the heart
It grows into the beauty
of the rose

Yet as the rose
If your love is not
nourished with warmth
and care
The petals will fall
the beauty will fade
Your love will
no longer be there

Thus, take your love and
embrace it with your heart
Giving as only you can
It will renew in its beauty
as when love first began

Growing in the warmth
of your heart
as graciously as God
has chose
Showing its tenderness
to the world
as does the beauty
of the rose
