The Rose
by Randy Rich

A single rose for you Lord
to bloom a spring of love,
red of grace and purity
creation of God above.

A vision of warmth and beauty
a miracle of delicate birth,
scented with heavenly fragrance
upon gentle breezes hearth.

Thorns pronounce the circular stem
remembrance of your pain,
the crown of crimson sacrifice
so all may share your name.

Each petal a kindness
you have offered to the world,
teaching us Godís mercy
as hearts of light unfurled.
