Answer To Lost Roses - Poem by Heather Burns

A lady received a
bouquet of roses
it was a windy day
a gust of wind caught
the roses
blew them all away.

They were tied with
yellow ribbons but
they could not hold
the story of lost
roses
somehow it must be
told.

Your dream ended too
quickly
how was you to know
the lady received the
roses
they were covered with
layers of snow.

They found a place in
her heart
it was hard to let them
go
but she had to release
them
to the wind they had
to go.

Help dry up their tears
they had to find their
way
so they could be happy
laugh again some day.

Who was this sender with
a heart of gold
the lady still awaits,
a story told.

    Maybe it was planned
    maybe a long lomg time ago
    By a superior inteligence
    that felt it was best and so
    The cold cold wind that ravaged
    all the roses, ribbons and mo
    Surely was God's hand
    that caused it all to go (Report) Reply
