A Basketful Of Roses
Author: Terrie*


you came gliding down
the stairway of heavens rainbow
full of life
like a rose blooming in the spring
right before our very eyes
under the supervision of the mighty one

you greeted us with a heavenly smile
that lit up straight into the night
we caught a glimpse of your heavenly reward

your heart is way bigger than the sphere
deeper than any ocean I've ever been near
and fuller than lady moon
we all admired what you shared

your child like laughter echoes in every one's heart
you are a rose of a heavenly delight
so young and caring
so thoughtful about everyone

if I had a basketful of roses
an arrangement of a colorful delight
I know each one would speak of your love
the sensitivity of your heart
the kindness of your soul

you are a ray of sunshine
that shines with Gods light
you are the beauty
and the rainbow of the basketful of roses
that you shared
with each and every one of us

thank you so much Britney
for putting a smile upon the very heart of me

------- Author's Notes -------

Thank you Britney for bringin' sunshine to our day/night...

A Rose ......a gift of Love and Life....

Britney,brings me great joy knowing that you enjoyed such a simple gift as simple as i....i didn't intend to start your tears to flow..but know that, they are wasted not...every single drop shall nourish a rose even as the last petal falls...and a new growth start anew...we are all like a rose ,fragile and unknown to the naked eye, until we bloom and unfold beneath each layer of petal of our skin....where our true self lies hidden within our a mom i am honored that you appreciate a legacy i shall someday leave behind... ..and know too that of you i am proud..Terrie*
