Roses

*I’m reaching back into my guitar case for this one, a song I wrote while expecting our first child four decades ago. Not too much song-writing for me during those busy years that eventually filled our home with the antics of four youngsters. Just a whole lot of Life and Love and now memories*

Roses
bright as the cheeks of children
on a December day
watching my children play

Roses

soft as the glow of morning

warming the earth below

watching my children grow

seasons go turning ‘round

and time goes by

memories linger

as long as I have

Roses

crimson and gold as Autumn

pressed and preserved with care

my children are smiling there

    Roses. How wonderful.
    When I read this I thought, “Roses from the Guitar Case”
    Sounds like a great title doesn’t it?
    Maybe Joan will play for us some day!
    For now, it’s #WordPressWednesday so enjoy!

    1. Thank you so much, dear friend. So sweet to share your company on this amazing journey. Blessings and sweetness to you *sunrise over mountains**doves cvooing**wispy clouds*
