Garden Of Gold

©

Published: February 2006

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.

Truly amazing! This poem reminds me of the most splendid garden I ever visited in the Village of Tripura named Maharanipur. That garden is also proud of its beautiful roses. The rose means many things, many emotions indeed! Great job. Well done.

This poem reminds me of my mother. She loved planting flowers, especially roses. That was one of her greatest joys, and one year she grew beautiful roses the size of a 2 lb. coffee can lid. One day I took a picture of her holding a pretty yellow rose, and as I snapped the picture she moved the rose in front of her face, being silly, and we could not even see who she was. That's how big she could grow roses. That year when the roses withered and died, she did too! My mother passed away two years ago, but to this day her beautiful roses have continued to bloom.

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.
