We Shall Keep the Faith

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

Oh! you who sleep in Flanders Fields,
Sleep sweet – to rise anew!
We caught the torch you threw
And holding high, we keep the Faith
With All who died.

We cherish, too, the poppy red
That grows on fields where valor led;
It seems to signal to the skies
That blood of heroes never dies,
But lends a lustre to the red
Of the flower that blooms above the dead
In Flanders Fields.

And now the Torch and Poppy Red
We wear in honor of our dead.
Fear not that ye have died for naught;
We’ll teach the lesson that ye wrought
In Flanders Fields.

A Rose That Once Stood Alone

Saturday, March 8th, 2014

A solitary rose grew in the darkest corner of the garden
Surrounded by many others
Yet remained alone

Time passed and trials came and went
One dealt a severe blow
And the rose began to wilt and wither

Forgotten…

Then… as if by a miracle…

There came a soft and gentle breeze
Followed by a ray of light
As all the other roses fell into darkness
The solitary rose began to shine

Shining with a special light…
And watered by a gentle cascade…
A cascade of love
A cascade of selfless affection

“I do… not now but forever…”
Said the rose to the sunlight
And there they remain
A rose in full bloom
With her sunshine smiling down on her…

You are my sunshine, my life, my very soul
And I your rose blooming in the light of your love.

Solitary Rose

Sunday, March 2nd, 2014

A solitary rose in the garden
Whispered to herself
These thorns are for my safety
Alas! Still they pluck me up
Stumbling to the decking hall
Placing herself in the smiling wall
How she lost in her own thoughts,
About the warmth of the credulous wind
And the charm of the maternal land
Still she responsibly did her duty
blazing her fragrance and beauty.
