ROSE

 

Some things are impossible to understand

That’s why they’re called mysteries

The greatest mystery is love

Love truly does conquer all

Divine love most especially

Expressed through the hands of others,

Actions taken that fill us with peace

And Gratitude and Love

And moves us to ‘pay it forward’

Yet, how can we ever pay

For all the gifts we’re given?

We pay by sharing our gifts, ourselves

To the very best of our ability

It may never be enough

But the ‘widow’s mite’ though seemingly small

Has strength enough to scale the walls

Of hopelessness and despair

Out of grief and out of pain a hero comes

For it is through the darkness

Sometimes crawling on bruised or broken knees

That courageous faith is born

And enables us to travel far

So do not worry or despair

The deepest love may appear a scar

But it lifts us up and chases away

Every anxious moment, every fear

Know this, o trembling souls of earth

Death may come, but so too birth

Cycles of life will carry on

And it is love that keeps us strong
