My Rose Never Faded

© Lewis Beesinger

Published on October 2008

While walking through seventeen
I picked a bright red rose.
I was living wild and reckless; it changed my life, I suppose.
A blue ribbon winner with its brilliant flare.
Its beauty was enchanting like a breath of mountain air.
I kept it near my heart, red velvet all aglow.
Why God gave me this gift I guess I'll never know.
Withstanding troubled times and a heartbreak now and then,
But the rose never wilted amazing me once again.
Roses bloom in their season then die and fall apart.
My rose kept on living, rooted deep within my heart.
My days are growing short now; I have lived a fulfilled life.
The rose I picked when I was young is my fateful loving wife.
She gave me three sons and they filled my bouquet.
Pride and pleasure overflowed to see them blossom day by day.
We have grown old together and my heart is still elated after all the years gone by.
My rose never faded.

For my Loving wife

The poem remind me of my mom and dad, when my dad was sick I saw lot of love for him to my mom, he didn't want to die, he was always saying to my mom who will take care of you when I'm gone.

This so describes my father in law who passed before my mother in law. He was her ROSE as he was to Her. They are now together and I treasure every day that I knew TWO BEAUTIFUL ROSES. May their love always stay dear to in our memories.
