The Rose Beyond The Wall

A rose once grew where all could see,

sheltered beside a garden wall,
And as the days passed swiftly by,
it spread its branches, straight and tall...

One day, a beam of light shone through
a crevice that had opened wide
The rose bent gently toward its warmth
then passed beyond to the other side

Now, you who deeply feel its loss,be comforted - the rose blooms there-its beauty even greater now, nurtured by

God's own loving care.
