Garden Poem

A rose in grandma's garden to represent her love that overflowed from her being.

Garden Of Gold

© Lois E. Felder
I walk through the garden,
On this warm summer’s day,
To smell the flowers,
That grandma raised.

In the middle,
Of this garden of gold,
Stood this one,
Single red stem rose,
The rose means so many things,
From the ones you receive on your wedding day,
To the one you get on Valentine’s Day,
But this single rose standing here today,
Represents the love grandma gave.

From the love she gave,
When she planted it that day,
To the love she gave us,
Each and every day,
So when you pass this garden of gold,
Remember the love that this rose holds.

  • My great grandma passed away so long ago but I still miss her because she taught me so many things happening in life. She taught me to forgive myself first before I start to give forgiveness to other people. I miss you so much grandma, I miss that smile that is always on your face.
