Eternity's Roses


I wonder if there are roses in Heaven.

And when they bloom, they bloom forever.

Only God could be so clever.

They're never affected by the weather.

That's why I'm so strong in believe in.

I refuse to waver.

I bet they won't even have thorns that prickle.

My hand when picked.

They'll smell sweeter than summer's long lasting honeysuckle.

That fills the sweet air.

I wonder if the scent will tickle my little nose.

I bet that I have to step on my lean tiptoes.

Or be lifted by an angel's wings.

Too, even reach such a rose.

The scent and beauty that attracts songbirds and humming birds that sings.

I bet roses in Heaven are as tall as a tree.

Where Heaven's angels swing!

I bet their scent is probably seven times stronger.

Lasting longer,

With petals that never close.

Only God could create, Eternity's Roses.
