Where Roses Grow.

We know of dark places
Where the lamps no longer shine,
Our lives are bleak
Where hope has left us,
And no roses grow.

That darkness is often there,
But knowledge will tell us
The darkness will subside,
The light will be back in our lives,
And the roses will grow.

    A fine write Gold.


    ANGEA HERE - GOOD MORNING UNCLE ANDY - Love FLY ME TO THE MOON - very evocative. Thanks for sharing and for two more excellent Stanzas about Roses a la Uncle Mike !

    You do not sorrow
    Like those that have NO HOPE
    Death doth hide - But not divide
    It is as though - The rose that bloomed
    Upon your Trellis Fence
    Has blossemed on the Other Side
    You will see her lovely Face
    Some bright Golden Morning
    When the clouds have lifted
    And the shades have flown
    No more darkness Pain or Death
    Heart aches gone forever
    No more Night only Light

    I am sending these words of Comfort & Encouragement
    As you face this short period of separation - BUT
    With JOYCE not by your side - but ever in your HEART - AMEN

    Blessings & Peace to You & Yours

      Thank you Angela for your fine words, she will be forever with me but I do have the ability to move forward into a new life. Joyce will always be at my side though and we will be together again.

      Wheh i was a keen photographer my theme was to capture how nature reclaims what mankind has discarded. Nature prevails.
      The roses will surely grow again for they have a rich soil in which to live and bring joy.

      • Goldfinch60

        May that joy be shown to everybody d a. Thank you.

        You flatter me with such a super response - and now I look to cutting the first rose of the year wit its promise of what's to come.

        • Goldfinch60

          May that rose fill you with the light of a great year.

          A beautiful write.

          These dark moments in our lives are temporary but light and roses always prevail in our lives.

          Keep writing FineB
